As a journalist, the Kemper power plant is the gift that keeps on giving.

The biggest construction project in the history of Mississippi is doomed. Every few months, the cost overruns re-escalate. There is no end in sight. Just last month, Southern Company announced five billion won’t be enough. The company did not predict a final cost.
