I'm not usually one to praise democrats, unless they do the right thing. Governor Paterson has signed legislation allowing drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale formation in upstate New York. Good for him! It's been predicted that the price of natural gas could double this winter, so this is good news for New Yorkers.
Now if we can just keep the enviro-nazi's and the "not in my back yard" crowd out of this we'll be all set.
