I’ll tell you, for a while there, I was thinking that the base MSRP for the four-door Fiat 500 was $25k, and I was like, “WHAT?!” But now I see it’s only $20k (and the $25K price was for the pimped out “Lounge” model.)

In Addition to Killing People in San Bruno, PG&E Constructs Large Ugly Buildings – SF’s Ugliest, the Embarcadero SubstationThursday, November 15th, 2012

Oh, what’s that, PG&E? You’re not the worst large utility in America? Oh yes you are.
Oh, what’s that, PG&E? At least this monolith hasn’t killed eight people through your gross incompetence? Well, I’ll give you that.
Oh, what’s that, PG&E? You want to charge what to the ratepayers instead of your shareholders? Oh, everything?
Well, sure, why not? Let’s give all our money to PG&E else they’ll kill even more people.
Consider it protection money.
