    The charges will be grand theft and terminal stupidity...

    "Gee Joe, we're out of crack, how shall we ever get some more?"

    "Let's steal some wire from an Avista substation. That's perfectly safe."

    I sense some passive aggressive feeling in flyarb. There is help, you've just got to "reach out."

    Assuming this was not a parnk, I have a question. How many recycle facilities are nearby? I would think that a driver's license would be required to recycle certain metals. A "reward?" How much did they take and how much was it worth?

    I know this is a crime, not unlike what Avista charges - or pays its execs. But a crime is a crime I suppose. I'm also thinking the reward is something similar, relatively, to what that cruise line offered the survivors of their incompetence. What was that again? A 30% discount on their next cruise? Hardy har.
