Sorry, rather short notes today. Ben had a really bad night, the scratching is back and while not what it was this time last year, it does occasionally cause a rough night.
Veterans deserve better. Period. The fiasco that the French Camp VA has become is sad.
What are he odds that the family in the story in today’s Bee weren’t being “unethical” and had some form of stolen power themselves? It just seems unlikely that MID, whatever you may think of them (and who doesn’t?), is going around ripping out power meters of paying customers.
