Feb. 26: What FPL and the Oscars need

*Answer the questions, FPL
After today's major power outage in South Florida and through other parts of the state, Florida Power & Light will have some 'splaining to do. The power company should have a thorough investigation - preferably by an outsider - and a very detailed report to the public about what went wrong. It affected a lot of livelihoods.

*Oscars need the big pictures
It's no surprise that the Academy Awards telecast received likely its lowest ratings ever, given the lack of box office powerhouses among the major nominees. It's no coincidence that these low-budget, independent nominees coincide with a lack of quality production by the major studios. They've decided to do franchise blockbusters instead of quality films.
Once upon a time, they did both. Remember "Titanic," anyone?
