My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Ritter's Heavy Hand 

From the Rocky Mountain News:

. . ."It is like 'my way or hit the highway' and that's not right," Moffat County Commissioner Saed Tayyara said Wednesday.

Ritter's July 3 visit and subsequent request angered county commissioners, who say Vermillion Basin contains an estimated $5.85 billion worth of gas, based on production in surrounding areas. Ritter disputes the estimate. . . .

Moffat County's three commissioners said Ritter is ignoring their 12 years of planning to put together a drilling plan.

Almost $6 billion? Perhaps in his zeal to create the "new energy" economy, Ritter is too anxious to cripple the "old energy" economy, and the rest of the economy with it.
