Our Electricity Overlords

Meant to flag this article yesterday. It seems that some people are concerned about municipal oversight of Entergy, which is structured as follows:

1. City Council pays lawyers to regulate Entergy.

2. Entergy reimburses Council for the lawyers hired to regulate Entergy.

3. Ratepayers (you and me) pay Entergy to reimburse Council for lawyers hired to regulate Entergy.

Pretty awkward if you ask me.
