God Bless Lon Burnham! Let’s keep him in office.
As seen in the FWWeekly Blotch:
Chesapeake “whore-d’oeuvres” will be a new item on the menu at State Rep. Lon Burnam’s annual birthday bash Tuesday night. Burnam describes the dish as “white fluffy sugary stuff on a skewer, that will be coming to a neighborhood near you soon — watch for a fire to roast it on.” Burnam’s latest jab at the most aggressive gas drilling giant in the city is aimed at its “soft, sticky-sweet” sell to citizens about how safe urban drilling is, he said. “Folks have got to wake up to the very real dangers from the miles of pipelines that will eventually be running under most neighborhoods here to get the gas from the pump to the buyer. If they pump it, they’ve got to pipe it,” he said, “and that’s the part of the process that could be deadlier to neighborhoods than the gas well a few hundred feet away.” Wonder if we’ll soon see Tommy Lee Jones telling us roasted marshmallows are his favorite snack?
The comments indicate that the Barnett Shale Honeymoon is over in Fort Worth. Residents are not thrilled with Tommy Lee Jones telling them to
Get Behind the Shale” or the propaganda thrown at them 24/7 from Chesapeake.
Some residents are finally waking up to the realities of “Domestic Drilling.” They were eager to sign on the dotted line to get that bonus and royalty money. Now they are none too pleased to learn that a large pipeline will go through their front yards carrying highly explosive and corrosive wet gas.
Residents Concerned About Underground Gas Drilling Be sure to watch the video. Wet gas is so corrosive it can eat through the pipeline in less than three years.
