Nearly 800,000 Chicago area residents, many of them in the northern suburbs where I live, lost their power on Monday morning. About 10 percent of them are still without electricity tonight; I didn't get my power back until Wednesday afternoon.
I blogged from my Android phone mornings ago about this story, but now I have the audio of clueless US Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston) asking "Is there power out" while a guest on Don Wade & Roma's WLS-AM show.
Needless to say, the massive power outage was the preeminent story in Chicago earlier this week.
Clueless. Absolutely clueless.
Schakowsky: Is there a power outage?
