Sorry, PATH, all you get is the bucket... We the People got the deep, dark, chocolate cheesecake!
As the PATH Project draws to an extended close with a federal battle over the ridiculous way PATH wasted our money during the past four years, it's time to rid our closets, basements and garages of all the PATH detritus that accumulated during the fight. While Dick & Ginny "shared the wealth" as recognition for a job well done, they also received PATH's bucket as a "hostess gift" from StopPATH. PATH's bucket showed up at numerous hearings and meetings. It was a place to store electricity, even though the bucket analogy never made much sense to anyone but the engineers who used it. It was also a place to store PATH's spendthrift expenses (because the word "account" is so hard for us hillbillies to understand!) Perhaps PATH can now recycle their bucket to come up with new inapt analogies for FERC in their sec. 205 filing to recover investment in their abandoned project? If so, they can pick up their bucket from a lovely neighborhood in Mt. Airy, Maryland that will now remain peacefully substation-free!
Many thanks to Dick and Ginny, our gracious hosts for the final PATH termination celebration party yesterday. And there was much to celebrate! Not only has PATH been terminated, but CAKES leadership put paid to the whole matter with a change to the county zoning ordinance to prohibit the use of the farm for a gigantic substation in the future. Well done, CAKES, well done!
