Blame Canada!

Once again, it's all our fault. Yanks are real good at the blame game. New York's mayor Michael R. Bloomberg puts the blame for the blackout square on us.

"But other officials, including Mayor Bloomberg, said they believed that the power failure might have stemmed from a failure on the Canadian side and spread south through the interconnected grid."

Couldn't possibly have anything to do with the antiquated power grid. Of course not.

President Bush on Friday called the worst blackout in North American history a ``wake-up call'' and said the electric grid must be modernized.

``I view it as a wake-up call,'' Bush told reporters during a visit to the Santa Monica mountains, adding that it was ``an indication we need to modernize the electricity grid.''

Go ahead, we can take it. You blame us for everything else anyway cuz you know we won't get all up in arms like most people. We just say....what-ever! I deal with Americans all day, I know it's just not worth the aggravation.
