We can import it from SD, but we can't build a power plant here?

SD is upwind of us, so we also import the pollution. it all balances out.

as long as the power lines run in an existing utility corridor, along rail lines, or along major highways, they can pack 'em in like sardines for all I care. and that allows an almost unlilmited number of lines when you spread out a map and look for yourself.

it's chopping up other land areas I get cranky about.

Come on guys and gals, Obama and the Government are trying to create 25 jobs....If not, the unemployment rate will go back up to 9.9 percent. Obama desperately needs these jobs.

Obama wouldn't know job creation if it was slapping him in his face.
