Fort Worth Needs A Moratorium

Oh, how I'd love to be within driving distance of this little get together tonight in Fort Worth. I'm hoping that all of you that are in the area are showing up in droves! I know that I would and do as Mr. Young up in war paint!

Below is a most informative email from the most honorable Mr. Don Young. He happens to be a most favorite person of my nine year old daughter.

"I'm not one to lean on hope to heavily. Action works better for me.

But the recent arrival of Deborah Rogers into the Barnett Shale gas wars is inspiring. She has dared to utter the "M" word in a town overcome by foolish greed. She has boldly questioned the idea of turning Fort Worth into a giant industrial village.

Fort Worth needed a Moratorium years ago but elected officials, the Star-Telegram, Chamber of Commerce and a variety of civic organizations conspired with gas drillers to suppress such an idea.

Now, the City of FW's grand experiment has allowed almost 2,000 gas wells to be placed in our town. Thousands more on the way, UNLESS we fight back. Deborah Rogers has gotten the ear of the power brokers. Hope is in the air.

She will speak tonight at the FWLNA meeting. It should be be a watershed moment in the gas wars. Put on your war bonnet, apply your war paint and SHOW UP.

Details below."

I was just telling Tammi that if there is anyplace in Texas that needs a moratorium, it's Wink.
