List: What else does PG&E want you to pay for? 

Wednesday, Sep 29 2010

In the tragic wake of the gas line explosion in San Bruno, PG&E is supporting a new state regulation that would require its customers to pay for damages from any future explosions that aren't covered by its insurance. What other damages would PG&E like its customers to pay for?

• The hospital bills for anyone PG&E's CEO hits with his car

• The dental work of the homeless people PG&E executives pay to fight in their maintenance station

• Anything PG&E technicians break while in your garage pretending to read your meter

• A severely burned original copy of The Egyptian Book of the Dead — don't ask questions

• One time PG&E's senior engineer got in this bar fight and hit a guy with a chair. PG&E customers need to give the guy $300

• A fine of $10,000 PG&E's accountants picked up after adding a deck to his house without getting the proper permits

• Hookers!

• PG&E's 2009 taxes

• The lobbying fees accrued from screwing the public

• Ratepayers can save themselves big money and just firebomb their own homes in the future

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
