Coincidence? Perhaps...

Yesterday some guy - we're assuming he was with the electric company, stuck his head in the window and told us that there'd be no power between 6:00AM - 8:00AM on Saturday. Nothing unusual about that. Now I see this:

WASHINGTON -- President Bush will have a routine colonoscopy Saturday and temporarily hand presidential powers to Vice President Dick Cheney, the White House said....

In 2002, Bush transferred presidential powers to Cheney for more than two hours.... The 2002 procedure began at 7:09 a.m and ended at 7:29 a.m. Bush woke up two minutes later but did not resume his presidential office until 9:24 a.m.

We're an hour behind DC. In other words, we'll be completely blacked out - no phone, television, radio, no internet - for the entire Cheney Presidency tomorrow. We're going to miss the invasion of Iran and the Scooter Libby pardon. God only knows what else.
