Delays in restoring power after Sandy anger many

Excerpt:

A volunteer passes a damaged home emblazoned with U.S. flags in the Rockaways, Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012, in the Queens borough of New York. Despite power returning to many neighborhoods in the metropolitan area, many residents of the Rockaways continue to live without power and heat due to damage caused by Sandy.  / AP Photo/John Minchillo NEW YORK Utility companies in New York and New Jersey closed in on restoring power Sunday to the last of the 8. 5 million who lost it during the superstorm two weeks ago and a subsequent nor’easter, but tens of thousands of homes and businesses were too damaged to receive electricity, and delays and a dearth of updates have angered residents and government officials alike. Power problems remained unresolved on New York’s Long Island, where about 300 people protested Saturday at an office of the beleaguered Long Island Power Authority.

Key:

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
