Power Company

This might be a great idea for our wonderful electric company LIPA. Come up with a secret proprietary way for calculating electric usage. The meters could be set to run on battery power so they are always spinning, even in a blackout! Plus they could multiply usage by a secret number, "e" perhaps, to up the usage.

Sounds like AT&T is making a good case for the government to step in and regulate their meters under the same weights and measures rules that apply to scales, gasoline and gas and electric meters.

ATT has the best protection from the law that money can buy so there is no danger from Federal (or state)-maybe locally there's a chance to get them on weights and measures violations but I am not holding my breath.
