In recent years, several corporate energy managers have told me that when they run the numbers on renewables, the payback just isn't quick enough. I'd suggest running the numbers again.

Bennet Kelley

April Fools' Day is a day for light-hearted hijinks without real consequences. Embracing foolishness as public policy is a far different notion altogether. The Cuba embargo is one of several fixtures in American politics that requires a suspension of disbelief.
