Not necessarily so, Mr Questioning. I know people who live in Plainfield that have had a ComEd smart meter for about a year now.

COMED has not installed any in the Naperville area... Yet !!! They have in fact installed a limited number near the Plainfield area. With that you are correct.

Marty... I am very sorry :( I should have just told them to put tinfoil hats on... That would help their alien fears.

An inquiring mind asks logical questions only ignorant people debase and ridicule people who only want to get at the truth in order to make us safer and freer. Looks like some of you are beginning to get concerned.
