In which readers engage in a conversation about wind, fires and PG&E



My argument: for those seniors on a fixed income, or those living in hospital beds or needing to refrigerate their meds, it's tough to have a power outage for two days ("Paradise Glossed," Nov. 21). PG&E said they wouldn't reimburse groceries this year if they decided to turn off the power! And for folks who are ill, who had money to go buy a generator or fuel to start it or the ability to turn it on? What about those with a well? Their power outage means they can't hose down their roof or barn?

PG&E should not be turning off our power every time it gets windy to try and solve their transformers causing fires!

They have to. I know it seems rough, but when the winds get going and the dry trees snap . . . PG&E is being sued for the deaths last year, and will face more for Paradise. Gotta turn off the ignition factor.

Sordid Practice

Newsom actually did visit California's condemned row in the primary of his first run for governor of California (Open Mic, Nov. 28). I agree, Gavin Newsom has the ingenuity to lead California to the end of this sordid practice and waste of tax dollars that does zero for public safety.
