We have to do something about skyrocketing energy costs:
Perhaps his $24 billion electric bill will teach Richard Redden not to leave the heat running. Thanks to a printing error, Redden and more than 1,300 Weatherford utility customers this week received billion-dollar electric bills marked as late notices.
Irving-bases DataProse, which prints customer bills for Weatherford Electric, said the company was embarrassed by the error.
“Obviously, this is not something we are pleased about,” said Curtis Nelson, DataProse vice president and general manager.
Although in all probability, 24 billion will be peanuts after Bush gets done with his energy initiatives.
