Harsh cold self-serving words are hard as hell to eat.

Humility and humanity are close relatives in any language. Many millionaires and billionaires today have not either. Mr. McClendon threats of dark cold nights that he only can take away is just nonsense.

Men that proclaim in their dominion of rule to have hung the stars moon and brought about security to all are an affront to me and maybe you too. God knows we have heard enough of that today.

Yes McClendon has got problems with gas seeping into the fresh water zones along with XTO Cabot and many others. And the biggest problem that remains is that over the years of production as the drilling mud behind the casing gives way the gas many tend to seep up into the fresh water zones. There are measures of oil and gas engineering common sense and reason that could be used today to prevent that long term.

But when boastful braggarts get the bully pulpit We the People must continue doing what we do and that is using our voice in dissent along with protest that will eventually get to the higher political powers to bring about change.
