Wonder if it is the same fibre optic contractor that is working
in El Paso. Yesterday, a contractor laying fibre optic cable
managed to hit in three locations water mains causing a
loss of over a million gallons of water and shutting down
service in several sections of town - after meeting with
the water utilities people to get maps of the existing
services. 3 weeks ago, the same company hit and broke
a 4 ft water main which resulted in the near death of
several people, closed a section of freeway for hours,
and washed away two houses - of course they said not
their fault and have refused to pay.
And it is supposed to be all in the name of progress.
Einstein once said, "Only two things are infinite:
the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not
sure about the universe."
