Researching commentary on Andre Carson's trite op-ed screed in today's paper -- one of those, "our lust for cheap oil caused the Deepwater Horizon oil spill" chidings, I realized I have one of those headaches so bad the only real treatment is to close one's eyes and hope to faint.
...Since that's not gonna happen, let's take a closer look at the The Honorahorrible The Mister Representative Carson's pointette and ask a few questions: Does he ride the bus in DC? Did he take Amtrak from Indy to Our Nation's Capitol? If not, why not? Doesn't he care about the environment?
And while he touts "alternative energy," I wonder what his plan is to replace all the products from ammonia to bras to nylon zippers that account for the 28-some percent of non-fuel uses of crude oil?
But I guess glib Gaia-worship is easier than thinking, especially in the U. S. Congress.
