Isn't AC More Dangerous than DC?

Our Grill the Grid Masters has been a popular feature for our readers. However, we're finding that our readers also have great answers. So we're combining our Grill the Grid Masters and the Solve This! puzzle contest. You are invited to send in technical questions, as before, and readers are invited to give answers. The question considered to be the most interesting to our readers will win a $50 gift card. And the best answer to any question also receives a $50 card.

Q: Isn't AC more dangerous than DC? If so, why? And if it is then why don't we switch over entirely to DC? Wouldn't we save lineworker lives?
