Why should someone in the Connecticut prison system working for tax dollars commit scams as their job is a scam. Is that double dipping?

problem was that they presold pellets, promising later delivery. Pellets are made from sawdust, a byproduct of the building industry, which has tanked. No building, no sawed wood, no sawdust, no pellets. That's why the pellets are scarce, and why the company couldn't deliver on the promised pellet sales.
Correctomundo. You get the gold star for explaining this. This also points out the frailty of many of these so-called 'free'(or cheap) alternative energy sources; they all inordinately depend on some sort of up-stream process ienffciency or offal.

Another is the cooking-oil-to-Diesel fuel lunacy. Question: what happens when the economy softens, and people stop eating out as often? Or, when people figure out that deep-fried food is unhealthy? Answer: the feedstock dries up - literally. That's also happening now.

A colleague at work spent over $2k for a pellet stove toward the end of the summer when gas/oil was at record highs, bragging how he was going to have a payback of ~2 years. Now, the stove sits idle - it's cheaper to heat with oil.

Another energy fad is revealed as an empty promise.

why people pay up front for something always baffles me...pay when the product is delivered or the service rendered!

May they both enjoy a jail cell in Somers. I believe Steve may enjoy being on the other side of the bars.

Since he is a state employee maybe we can tap into our tax dollars that will eventually pay his pension for our refunds.

Both of the gentlemen do not deserve to get off with a simple bankruptcy filing!

what has to be done in order to charge these a** holes since the AG's office obviously has no interest in filing criminal charges. Do I need to go to the Suffield police myself and file a complaint against these jerks?
