    While I must disagree with any opinion that RLM is an idiot--she's mosdef not--her thrust is better interpreted as a reminder that Schweitzer ain't perfect, & will on this issue probably disappoint.  But the charge of imperfection is a good one to face, otherwise there'd be no Draft Schweitzer movement to get an obviously better Senator in the seat vacated by Baucus (D-Wall Street, Western Regional Office).

    It'd be pretty sweet to seize back your sold-off utilities... if it was legal.  Failing that, I hafta sympathize with an economy for Montana, by Montana, while simultaneously holding to the priority of massive ecological threats like climate change as a trump over what's considered to be good in the short term for any state with fossil assets.  

    It's time to start letting sleeping dinosaurs lie, lest we join them in extinction by our consumption of them.
