I know its, not just telco's who do this.  But I've got to wonder, does
the PPL's PR department really think no one will notice a 1300 megawatt
plant vanishing from the grid?  Was the reason so bad, its better for
people to speculate reasons instead of saying what happened.

   "Industry sources said the outage was at the giant Colstrip power plant in
   Montana, where units 1, 2 and 3, totalling about 1,300 megawatts, tripped
   off line for unknown reasons.  PPL Corp, Colstrip's owner, declined to
   comment on the plant's status for competitive reasons."
