Yup.. Lead story on every channel.  If it is our worm, look for more 
problems as the computers that run chillers and back up generators are more 
and more often accessed remotely by technicians using a company supplied 
laptop.  If it is the worm that caused the outage, then while it may have 
been poorly written, it did do a major hit to the infrastructure. 
Someone's head will roll because there was supposedly a specific team 
specializing in protecting power grids on the internet.  Gadzooks, how many 
servers do the power companies own that have to be patched?
