    through downtown Omaha?  Buffett would not be pleased.

    That said, the pipeline would be above ground, and I'm not sure a spill from it would be too hard to contain.  There are better objections to the project.  At the same time, if gas just keeps getting more expensive, it might someday become profitable enough to run one over the rockies or east through Canada.  Anything to delay drilling the sands is good, but short of the Canadian government declaring them off limits, which they won't do, i'm deeply pessimistic.
