Mississippi’s Hattiesburg-American also has a curious story that might be worth follow-up: Utility managers in the state said they were called by Vice President Cheney’s office and told they needed to get power back to a gas pipeline, stat. “We were led to believe a national emergency was created when the pipelines were shut down,” said one manager. Workers were diverted, and a few hospitals had to stay without power for an extra day.
