The BuzzFlash Mailbag
December 28, 2001
Do you know the name of the Reagan parolee who was convicted of a subsequent (to being pardoned) grisly murder? It seems that people are bringing up Clinton's pardons again (sheesh!).
[BuzzFlash Note: His name was Robert Wendell Walker, Jr., and he was convicted on December 4, 2001, of "killing his wife, butchering her body and burning it in a barrel."]
I just read that the FERC is dropping their investigations of "market affiliate abuse" by Excelon (unfortunately, I can't link you there, but if you have a Schwab account, go to Quotes & Research, Markets and WRG Executive Summary and read the heading "Electricity"). If I read this correctly, the Federal Energy Regulatory Committee (FERC) is not going to investigate the power companies' market abuses on the west coast last winter. Following is the excerpt I read (if you're interested). Keep your eyes out for this.
ELECTRICITY: WRG's Christine Uspenski says FERC's move this week on Midwest regional transmission organization will ultimately be a positive, even though markets may not like it at first. FERC also dropped its probe of market affiliate abuse by Exelon (EXC 46), and deferred until 2002 its ruling on El Paso's (EPG 45) alleged gaming of the market; she expects the firm to be acquitted.
guys can't compete.
RE: going over to the "Dark Side"...
Apparently, that makes everything okey-dokey--wonder if they would think the same if he were still @ CNBC? It's good to see, though, that Fox is taking some heat for this...
[BuzzFlash Note: For an organization built on side-stepping the truth, what's so wrong with a few untruths about the war?]
On the small aircraft that crashed close to the San Onofre nuclear power plant; it was reported this morning on a local LA news station, I believe channel 7 or 11, -- with footage of the Culver City Mosque that was allegedly the target several weeks ago by the JDL leaders of a bomb plot -- that the persons in the craft were members OF the mosque.
It's all really odd.
Thinking about the shoe bomb, for all of about 1 second, after reading the headline that it is very "sophisticated" makes me think back to the jet that blew up after leaving JFK recently.
The descriptions of the event from people who were watching it seem to describe just about exactly what would happen if a shoe bomb went off.
On the lighter side.... A shoe bomb and the rest of this modern day farce makes me think of our beloved fav's from mad magazine, Spy Vs. Spy.
Cheers, and a Happy New Year.
I will send more money when I get some.
RE: BuzzFlash Interviews Congressman Henry Waxman
I'm a new reader.
Thanks for the news about Mr. Waxman and the work he's doing. I will take your advise and write to him to tell him to keep up the good work and don't let Enron or the GOP get away without answering those important questions.
Question for O'Reilly:
How come you have no interest in the financial connection between the Bush and the bin Laden families? No guts?
