The Pickens Plan

  I just saw a commercial on TV from this guy and went and checked out the website.  I'm not sure what to think if it yet.  First impression is, yes, I think nearly anything we do to reduce our dependence on Arab oil is a step in the right direction.  After reading there a few minutes though, I started to get a feeling I've had before about somebody.

  I hate to even jog your memories like this, but remember Ross Perot?  How, at first, he sounded like he might have some good ideas.  But then, he started dragging out the charts and pointers and you started to realize how much that voice was annoying you?  Yeah, it didn't take long for me to place him in the wacko file, and I think we can all agree that he drove himself there as fast as his little legs could peddle the crazy clown car. 

  This guy?  I don't know, but I DO know that you can't simplify any solution to our current energy "problem" with a whiteboard and 5 minutes of numbers pulled abstractly from your interpretation of facts.  That's just crazy.
