Stop the insanity! Ya, ya, I know it’s good for the economy of ND, but I thought we were doing all right before big oil came to town. If I wanted to live in a place where the countryside is pocked with derricks I’d have moved to Texas. I enjoy the wide open spaces and small populations North Dakota offers. On a recent drive home from Montana I stopped in Dickinson for gas. What cost be $3.61 in Montana cost me $3.94 in Dickinson. The stations were packed with vehicles, mostly crew cab pickups full of men. I got kind of creeped out that I couldn’t find another woman in sight. I’d never want to live near an oil boom area. I feel for those out west whose lives have been upended because of oil.

Who knows, maybe Communist China will start to buy it up, like the Tar Sands in Alberta.
