    Yes, I am just watching it on the news now. They say the Americans are blaming the Canadians and vice-versa.

    Here's a little fake article I wrote to scare my coworkers:

    http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/08/15/power.outages/general-motors.htm

    Our company created the GM software that I'm writing about there... I freaked out a few people with it today :-P
