         Barely five feet. I don't think she 
comes past my elbow. Paul Krugman is another and 
I understand he's pretty short, too. Fracking and 
drilling go back more than 60 years without 
incident - until now. She has gas appliances in 
her residence. Where she think it comes from?

         Doesn't matter.........long as we keep 
listening to Chicken Littles and frauds, America 
will never become energy independent. I made the 
point about global warming because she continues 
to insist there's "scientific evidence" to 
support the theory. I wrote a letter to the 
editor back when "Climategate" was a big story 
and her response was that "Climategate was debunked."

         Why? Is it because she said so? Sorry, I 
didn't get the memo. This woman is a complete 
fraud and I wouldn't believe a thing she said 
even if she put her right hand on Jesus Christ!
