1977 The Late Show

I love Art Carney and Lily Tomlin. This is an Altman-produced neo-noir by Robert Benton. It's. My favorite movie! I'm watching it for the 2nd time today. Anyone else familiar with this movie? It's on Prime, but I had to buy it. I recommend it highly. It's a comedy, mystery, and there's even a cat!

His Lights Stayed on During Texas' Storm. Now He Owes $16,752.


"My savings is gone,” said Scott Willoughby, a 63-year-old Army veteran who lives on Social Security payments in a Dallas suburb. He said he had nearly emptied his savings account so that he would be able to pay the $16,752 electric bill charged to his credit card — 70 times what he usually pays for all of his utilities combined. “There’s nothing I can do about it, but it’s broken me.”

Mr. Willoughby is among scores of Texans who have reported skyrocketing electric bills as the price of keeping lights on and refrigerators humming shot upward. For customers whose electricity prices are not fixed and are instead tied to the fluctuating wholesale price, the spikes have been astronomical.

Did everyone at the Capitol shelter within it?

if anyone knows. What I'm wondering is, if they evacuated the building, would they have met with the domestic terrorists outside? Sorry if it's a weird question, but I'm curious
