Lots to read and think about in the articles and comments about the airport ... thanks for keeping it going with a nice video.

There's a couple of threads about the airport, the families and of course the impact to EPA already.

What I would really like to see is what difference has been made to the disaster response in Palo Alto. If a power pole goes out again, will we be without power for 12 hours ever again? What has been done to our power supply to prevent citywide cuts? Is there any way we can "borrow" power from Mountain View on an emergency basis?

These are important questions?
