Electricity is very real and

Electricity is very real and important commodity for our nation, and all the Electronically manipulated world.
I started in this field of labor when in my Jr year of high school working for the local REA.
Upon ALMOST graduating I was hired by the REA at .99 an hr to build power lines and the rest is history after moving on to Democratic unionized labor in CO and AK.
America is dependent on electricity, Alaska, yes and no also dependent. In spite of electricity almost every where we still are able to survive long periods of time without it due to power outages, unlike much of the lower 48 mass populated areas who would not survive very long with no electric. Speaking of a Total dependence on electricity there also lies an area of doing harm by restricting it to total dependent areas of America and the world.
There has been an increase in the threat of EMP's being set off over America lately on several web sites as a means of crippling our nation economically as well as socially and militarily due to our almost TOTAL DEPENDENCE ON ELECTRICTY. I guess we'll see.
As for these youth studying electricity rather than communications, I'll give one word of advice when you mess up & get your wires crossed with electricity you can get killed or hurt badly real quick, when you mess up with communications, you get a wrong number dialed.
Good Luck kids with your choices in life as we all go forward.
