Quote of the Day

"We don't have the resources to keep our parks and our lakes up to the standards that the citizens of Ohio want. I think this is the best way to go."—Ohio State Rep. John Adams explaining that the only way to keep state parks up to par is to contaminate and destroy them by drilling for oil.

No, really: "A House bill introduced this week would create a panel that could open any state-owned land for oil and gas exploration to the highest bidder. The governor would appoint the five panel members."
