2,000 new millionaires a year!

That's right. The oil bidnezz in North Dakota is hopping and may be annually turning 2,000 plain folk into into millionaires. I'm not sure I'd like to move up there. The center of the activity, Mountrail, is about 80 mi. from the Canadian border and I'm guessing their Winters are a little colder/snowier/icier than ours. No thank you.

I'm happy to hear we're pumping large quantities of black gold in the U.S. of A. The "greenies" aren't showing me a lot of progress toward getting us off our "dependence" on the stuff. Until they get the price of electric cars down where Joe Plumber can afford them, and the distance traveled between charges gets waaaay over what it is now, we're going to keep using the old faithful gas-powered jobbies.

  1. I agree with you, but they need to get that Keystone Pipeline going. There's too much bottleneck up there as it is. Looks promising though.
