A.P. Blake reports the VA Hospital in Jamaica Plain lost power around 10:30 a.m., and now the halls are lit only by emergency lights and only two elevators are running.
There's a veteran singing Charlie on the MTA, playing a banjo, in one of the waiting areas. This is what power outages do. ... Pretty much everyone in the hospital is cracking jokes about it. "De-fund ACA and we'll turn the power back on!"
