Power Outage

A large section of Los Angeles and adjacent cities are currently experiencing a power outage. I never lost power, but the power went out about an hour ago from one block over for many miles to the east, north and south.

I obviously can't monitor all the local TV stations at once, but I've been scanning the "breaking news" reports. Despite reporting over and over that the power companies don't know what caused the outage, and that many people are stuck in elevators, to this point not one local station has reported that just yesterday Al Qaeda delivered a general threat that targeted Los Angeles by name.

Not that I necessarily believe that this was terrorism related, but what gives? Are these news outlets trying to contain a potential panic over this "coincidence"? More likely it probably just proves that these so-called news people don't even pay attention to and absorb what they report from one day to the next. Blah, blah, blah.
