    through the Scottish Highlands last month, we noted that one town was advertising its pride in having stopped wind turbines from being built in their area -- they think it ruins the pristine landscape. The pathetic thing was that not that far away we had passed a huge nuclear reactor that was one of the ugliest things I've seen. It's possible it was one of the ones that's been shut down (Wikipedia lists a bunch that were) -- I can't remember exactly where it was. But it was truly unsightly.
    I really like the sight of the large white wind turbines as they turn in a kind of graceful slow motion. I don't see why so many people oppose them.

    While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.

      I love the sight of wind turbines turning.  I'm moving to a place that is not only beautiful in itself, but is only 15 miles from a wind farm, so I can go and admire them whenever I feel like it!

        ...we will have our own household turbine, as well.
