The Refugee Gets a Spot of Ink

A recent op-ed in the Denver Post by former Colorado Sen. Tim Wirth and State Rep. Alice Madden tries to make a case that natural gas producers should welcome government oversight. Their rationale is that honest producers should have nothing to fear. The old "if you don't break the laws then the laws shouldn't bother you" canard so annoyed The Refugee that he had to respond. The Post saw fit to print that response in today's edition.

Not necessarily worth the click, but what the hell.

Mondo Like! (It took about an hour to load, did they feed the hamsters this morning?)

Plus the responses make me feel better about our minor disagreement on drug policy and enforcement. You talk show listening savage!

Heh! Our internecine battles are entertaining, but we keep ourselves pretty sheltered. Participating in an open thread like that one is illuminating.

The thread continues...

My comment taking one poster to task for dismissing your argument as "not persuasive" and then rebutting your reply with a well thought out and highly educated "Whatever" has not yet been posted. I guess the moderator thought it was a personal attack to suggest that people seeking agreement are most likely to succeed when everyone attempts to be persuasive rather than dismissive.

The commentary has taken an unusual turn. We actually reached agreement on some points.
