(2006-07-31) Queens Blackout

ConEd is being screamed at 9 days of Black Out in Queens for 100k residents. Before Burke took the helm of the utility company, Con Ed was under fire for the 1999 blackout in Washington Heights and a citywide power failure in 2003 (BlackOut-2003). Does having systems underground matter?

The West Coast had short Black Outs recently, which even took MySpace offline for 12hrs.
