The joke's on us

The Commonwealth Utilities Corporation has published one of those Good News/Bad News jokes, but like most victims of jokes my laughter is forced.

The good news? CUC is advertising for an "Engineering Manager for Power Generation" and for "Engineer (Mechanical, Electrical, and/or Civil Engineering)" at "VARIOUS DIVISIONS, SAIPAN".

Yup, you guessed it, that's the bad news too. How long have these positions been needed?

Geez, I hope one of them can write. Every time there's a story about alternative energy we get 'there's a law promoting it but CUC hasn't written the regulations yet'.

It sound's familiar. About 20 years ago, give or take a Board member's term, Sen. Herman R. Guerrero pushed through a law authorizing a revolving loan fund to build water catchments. You know, so maybe we wouldn't have to put up with water hours.
