The Shawne Merriman of Nor-easters

Lights out in NJ!!! (Pre-I got-caught-with-Steroids, Shawne Merriman that is) Or maybe No Power is more appropriate. (Present day I-got-caught-with-roids-and-can’t-use-them-anymore-Shawne Merriman).

But yep no power until at least Wednesday from what they say.

I am typing away furiously using free wi-fi at a crowded bookstore whose bathroom is apparently out of order. I don’t know what that means but I wouldn’t want to be the man having to clean that up.

UPDATE: Basement is flooded 8 inches. House has no electricity and is freezing. Water pressure is sporadic and water itself has a dark tea color but definitely does not taste like tea.

Quick question to y’all. If you were a hotel in this area would you start raising prices for rooms to meet this growing but temporary demand? Or do you simply take people, first come, first serve?

The first is called “price gouging” the second causes shortages. What to do?

Or what if you had a surplus of bottled water? (maybe you are Mormon, a paranoid tea party member or have leftover from Y2K) Would it be wrong for you to sell this water at a marked up price?
