Good thing I'm not paranoid

It is a good thing I'm not paranoid, or I might think that my government, which would never lie to me, and Britain's government, which would never lie to them, were hiding something about the highly coincidental power outage during rush hour in London today.  If I were paranoid, I might believe that this and the US blackout seemed a lot like warning shots across the prow by somebody who wanted to communicate something to us about our vulnerability.  Phew, I'm glad I'm not paranoid.

Generally I'm not into conspiracy theories, but this DOES strike me as strange... Especially since the same company was involved in both episodes...

Of course it's also totally incidental, that Tony Blair had to speak in court about the David Kelly "suicide" the very same day. Guess what hit the headlines in Britain the next day, what a convenient diversion...and if that doesn't help, just send some tanks to Heathrow airport, wouldn't be the first time..
