Who writes this stuff? Better yet, who believes this stuff?

"This modest rate increase recognizes the need for TVA to continue to build on the financial and operational performance improvements we have made over the past three years...It will allow us to more effectively deal with a rapidly changing industry while lowering debt levels that directly affect our ability to continue to provide energy at the lowest feasible cost.”

Tom Humphrey notes this gem from the Times Free Press as well:

So demand is dropping so TVA needs to raise rates?
