Now this is really weird,
seems like an odd happening of events.
I would say its probably easy to see how a conspiracy could possibly become of this.
Two seperate stories, yet directly related to each other.



Merger of Duke Energy and Progress Energy would create largest U.S. utility

As chief executive of the Charlotte-based Duke Energy, James F. Rogers has become a familiar face in Washington over the past three years, playing his part in the futile effort to forge a cap-and-trade scheme to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

But with climate legislation moribund, Rogers has turned to breathing more life into his own company. On Monday, Duke Energy announced a $13.7 billion merger deal with Raleigh, N.C.-based Progress Energy, forging the largest utility in the United States with 7.1 million customers and 57,000 megawatts of power generation capacity.

If the deal is approved by regulators, the heft of the combined company would make it easier to borrow money to undertake large-scale projects such as new nuclear power plants, for which each company has separate plans on the drawing boards. Moreover, Duke Energy, where business has been relatively stagnant, will add a company whose earnings are growing faster.

Obama aide's wife dead in burning car

Washington lobbyist Ashley Turton, the wife of a White House aide, was found dead Monday in a burning vehicle at her home in Washington, authorities said.

Turton was employed by Progress Energy and was married to Daniel Turton, deputy director of legislative affairs in the Obama administration, USA Today reported. They have three children, 4-year-old twin boys and a 2-year-old girl, family friend Brian Wolff told the newspaper.

District of Columbia Fire Department spokesman Pete Piringer said firefighters found heavy smoke and fire coming from a garage at the back of the home when they arrived shortly before 5 a.m. EST and discovered a woman's body inside a sport utility vehicle once they put out the flames.

Piringer said it appeared the SUV had crashed into something and she was unable to get out.
