Mr. Ken Hughes must be miserable. Like Dorothy in the “Wizard of Oz,” he has to wake up every day and realize he’s not in Kansas anymore. He’s in Wise County where 85 percent of the people are conservative Republicans, and 90 percent like myself drive gas guzzling pickups and sport utility vehicles.
For him to suggest that BP’s actions were a crime is ludicrous. Joe Barton was right – BP is being shaken down by our liberal administration in Washington, D.C. Whether he likes it or not, this country runs on oil, and “stuff” happens.
Perhaps it’s time for Mr. Hughes to buy a hybrid and drive to California so he can be with his own kind.
By the way, while I have no direct knowledge of the incident, I have no doubt it was one of those mean old Republicans who knocked down his mailbox.
