Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn't.

- Mark Twain

Drill it Deep

"The House voted Thursday to end a quarter-century offshore drilling ban and allow energy companies to tap natural gas and oil beneath waters from New England to Alaska.

Opponents of the federal ban argued that the nation needed to move closer to energy independence and insisted the gas and oil could be taken without threatening the environment and coastal beaches. They said a state choosing to keep the moratorium could do so."

Whatever your position on drilling and decreasing our dependence on the middle east, this is a good thing, if you believe in state's rights. There is one problem, as this is Clear Politics: "...the billís prospects in the Senate were uncertain."
