Smart meter? Not by the hair of my chinney-chin-chin!

"From his home in Bowdoinham, Maine, the helicopter pilot and environmental activist is leading opposition to digital electrical meters being installed by the local utility, Central Maine Power. The new devices, which use wireless radios to transmit data about electricity consumption, are touted as a critical component of a more intelligent electrical grid. With smart meters, consumers could track the price of electricity in real time, and utilities could lay off tens of thousands of meter readers."
He contends his meter emits dangerous radiation (along with cell phones, microwave ovens, and internet routers) and wants it gone.

The helicopter pilot obviously suffers from "electrophobia". There's a lot of that going around. There was a similar disease in the late 1890's and early 1900"s as homes became wired for electricity.
