    much higher than that.  1,000 ft is the height of a very tall sky scraper; nothing a telephoto lens can't overcome.  Seems reasonable, if you ask me.

    And yes, Exxon deserves to be bled dry for this, this pipeline needs to be appropriately taxed, and we need to end all oil company subsidies.  But that doesn't change the fact that there are actual engineers and construction workers on the ground right now trying to clean this up, as well as aerial spotters in their own helicopters. The last thing they need is a swarm of media copters low to the ground screwing things up.

    Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!
