Bummer. I had hoped that you would chime in on the Texas power grid crisis given your expertise as a power electrical engineer.

Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.

Disturbing to read that while reportedly all Dems were disgusted by Cruz's behavior, only some GOPers were.

Gives me the impression once more that Republicans put party ahead of ethics, even decency.

Also that only "losers" suffer, in this case, only the poor (or the non-rich) freeze. The wealthy have generators, while the stinking rich get tickets to warm resorts. Perhaps even fly in private jets to avoid risk of contagion.

Cruz, least sympathetic politician in America

His getaway to Cancún during the Texas power emergency was only the latest episode in a political career that has left Mr. Cruz reviled by Democrats and more than a few Republicans.

And he left his dog in the house with no power and no heat... looked after by a security guard who was left in the house with no power and no heat.

From the NYT piece Amanda linked:

quote:
Throughout his political career, Mr. Cruz has united politicians from former President George W. Bush to Senator Rand Paul in mutual distaste. “Lucifer in the flesh,” John Boehner, the former House speaker, said of Mr. Cruz in 2016. Even Satanists could not abide the comparison; a spokesman for the Satanic Temple quickly released a statement saying that the group wanted “nothing to do” with politicians like Mr. Cruz.
