To start things off, it’s been a long, long time since I talked about this. When we were last all together, it was June 27th 2010. The day our city suffered its worst blackout in the modern age. We called it “The day of separation”.
We’ll get to why, eventually.
My job, for now, is to tell this story in its entirety with no omissions of the truth, no holding back. 10 years is long enough to hold onto this story, though I’m sure many of you are asking why I’m bothering to tread on old ground, bring up bad memories and re-open old wounds.
It’s because the channel has started showing up again. Not just in my home, but in that of my friends, my family and even on TV forums. Random folks are now asking what kind of PR stunt this is; bemused at best and morbidly curious at worst.
Heaven help them if they watch it long enough.
