Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OG&E)

WILL RECORD REVENUES PRODUCE RECORD DEATHS?

This web page is in memory of Bernice Watts, age 85, who recently died of heat exhaustion after OG&E cut off her electricity and Oklahoma City cut off her water. Last year I said in a speech, "In this next year, Oklahoma City is going to start leaving some people behind for the wolves to devour." I am sorry to find this coming true.

Eternal rest grant to her, and may perpetual light shine upon her.

According to the OG&E website, the company is booking record revenues and high profits. The question I would like to ask all OG&E stockholders is: Just how greedy are you people anyway?

Eternal rest grant to her, and may perpetual light shine upon her.

Apparently, they are greedy enough to kill an elderly lady for the sake of a few dollars worth of electricity. Greedy enough to cut off people's electricity in the middle of January. Greedy enough to shut their ears to the cry of the poor.

Eternal rest grant to her, and may perpetual light shine upon her.

Letter to the editor, Daily Oklahoman, July 24, 2001:

The recent heat exhaustion death of Bernice Watts after Oklahoma City cut off her water and OG&E cut off her electricity is a measure of the moral degeneracy of these times. As a citizen of Oklahoma City, I'd like city government to know that I am ashamed of their actions in this matter. And I'd like to ask the stockholders of OG&E: how greedy are you people anyway?

The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus comes to us in the person of people like Mrs. Watts, and if we turn our back on them, we turn our backs on Jesus. We say we believe in God, but instead of showing our faith in works of love, mercy, and compassion, we prove our amorality with works of gluttony, alienation, cruelty, and greed. As the Bible says, "Faith without works is dead."

OG&E: Just another cruel and heartless corporation, greedy for cash, indifferent to the collateral damage.

Eternal rest grant to her, and may perpetual light shine upon her.
