  Illinois Tea Party Are people getting fed up?

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Illinois' lieutenant governor is urging people to mail tea bags to two electric utilities to protest rate increases - an idea that leaves the post office cold.


Utility officials announced last week that electricity rates next year will increase an average of about 22 percent for ComEd customers and 40 percent to 55 percent for customers of St. Louis-based Ameren Corp. (AEE) ComEd, a division of Chicago-based Exelon Corp. (EXC), and Ameren together serve 4.9 million customers in Illinois.

Ameren spokesman Leigh Morris discouraged even empty tea bags. He said they could slow the utility's processing of customers' bills.
I'm going with yes. I do think people are getting fed up. 
Now wouldn't it make a cold hard statement of protest to the state of the gov't if a nice large group of folks from Boston got together and dumped some tea in the bay. Then again, environmentalists might not like that one.

I can see dolphins waiting with their cups, though . . .
