Re: “ExxonMobil unit settles fracking pollution case with EPA

Well, Y'all know the story - we at ADEQ got regs, but we don't enforce hard - remember Devine - ex ADEQ Director caught with disposing massively and illegaly just like Exxon? got a slap on the wrist from ADEQ by Benafield who he had promoted when Director! ..and so it goes - keep low - keep quiet - fine low fine often but keep profits up - raises keep coming - industry's happy - Guv's happy - enviro? - not so good - but with global warming - we all die anyway!

Re: “New from the Times: Muckraking the Mayflower Oil Spill

I would like to help - as an ex-ADEQ person i may help navigate the agency network - would give a few bucks too! How's that thing work? Also have general water expertise - not like that of Martin Maner who is the guy u realy need! He's not doing anything - why not recruit him! Then there's dick cassat - he just retired and always has an opinion - there are lots of good Arkies that are worried about the river - how about the Dog's Mike Masterson? He's hot on folks worried about river messes!

Re: “Strawberry fields forever; then I read the paper

Thanks Max, Brum almost had me convinced that not stirring the nuts in Canwqay was worth depriving a good organization of deserved income and that Sanders wasn't as evil as Raper - now i know he was just smarter!

Re: “Environmental groups meet with ADEQ on hog-farm permit

I'm confused - I thought FOI prevents meetings with officials without the press! So how did this get thru?

Re: “A post-racial world? Gay people treated fairly? Read on

After dutifully reading DBI, I wondered, at what age do u stop going to reunions? - I never went - is there a protocol? I saw the korean vets on TV - I never got an invite - was inot a big enough hero? Who does the figuring for all these things - there must be some folk at the Dog who figure out the weddings and the person of the week - how come we don't know who's in charge?
