Moab, Utah and Oil

I was down in Moab, Utah, for Thanksgiving.

Agreed: it's one of the most beautiful spots in America. I stayed at my father-in-law's house in Castle Valley.

No, oil wells shouldn't be put on the top of the arches, as one poster put it.

But there are thousands of square miles of land in which some oil or gas wells were be utterly inconspicuous, if you could find them at all.

Yes, drill, baby, drill.

I don't object to having spots in national parks that are off limits. But environmentalists won't accept any. Either people will see the wells -- or the land is unpolluted by humanity, so it must not have wells either.
