Why are liberals falling down the rabbit hole? Oh woe is me, bemoan liberals far and wide across this country. The president is not doing this or that...
Despite what oil companies like Exxon want you to believe, oil pipelines leak. It's what they do. What's happening in Arkansas right now could be the future for communities from North Dakota to Texas if President Obama approves the Keystone XL pipeline.
Taxes on baby diapers and water heaters should not subsidize roads and rails. Gas taxes are a nearly perfect user fee. But our state gas tax has lost a lot of its punch over the years.
This week, NPR broadcast an interesting report about a researcher who has been studying health effects on workers on frac crews. Not familiar with hydraulic fracturing, he expected to find the workers exposed to toxics in drilling fluids when he want on location. What he found was very different.
Knowing what's behind Congress's passion for ethanol as a fuel is not quite as inscrutable as knowing what sparks romantic love, so let's look at some possibilities.

In a classic example of crony board behavior, in spite of the grossly embarrassing Senate hearings highlighting massive fissures in JP Morgan's trading oversight and management, the Board of Directors said on Friday they would continue to support Mr. Jamie Dimon as BOTH the bank's Chairman and Chief Executive.
