ADVANTAGE INSTAPUNDIT! I was watching Fox News on TV while eating lunch, and was about to post that New York and other eastern cities are suffering a blackout. Naturally, Glenn Reynolds is already on the case.

One of Glenn’s readers, who is in the midst of the blackout himself, asked if terrorism was involved. But both Glenn and Neal Cavuto of Fox are stressing the heat.

Speaking of heat, James Taranto does a little speculating about what’s behind France’s claim that its recent heatwave has killed 3000.

It is an interesting and politically loaded number, that’s for sure.
