Letter to the Editor--Roan Plateau

Earl Ashbury, who has no connection to the oil industry, wrote a wonderful letter to the Gazette, yesterday, regarding Mark Udall, Ken Salizar, John Salizar, and Bill Ritter. It is too long to quote here, but the bottom line is worth noting:

I don’t want to hurt our environment, either. But it’s not necessary to be a wacko about it. Drilling on the Roan Plateau, for instance, has been studied for years by government agencies, and plans have been instituted to drill in an environmentally wise way.

It will eventually happen. But in the meantime, the Salazars, Ritter and Udall will have made their obeisance to the environmentalists in order to keep their campaign contributions coming.
