Copper Wiring is Tempting

This headline just came up in Yahoo…and I thought I’d add a fact that wasn’t reported.

One major reason why some folks are without electricity in Oklahoma is that poor people are stealing the copper wiring right off the work crew trucks! This slows down the process greatly because the electricians need to return to headquarters to fetch new reels of wiring. And copper is expensive and finite. There are regular public service commercials telling people not to risk stripping metals from housing or power substations.

Christ have mercy!

We are a very impoverished state. I am so sad to see folks in such desperate straits(for whatever the reason).

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
