    Snyder&Company, the simple facts are that for 3-4 days last week we had very high temperatures and humidity. Folks were asked to control their reliance on air conditioning, water usage and electricity.  Detroit has 5 major electrical cables that run the downtown area.  Three of those are 80-100 years old and they are the ones that malfunctioned! Then, to top it off, we had 3 huge electrical storms come through this area downing trees and power lines which put even more strain on the electrical grid, and those hard-working "union thugs" were doing major overtime to restore power to the people.  Lets turn our outrage to ending the Sequester and re-building our infrastructure.
