I know from experience that to have a cell phone tower erected you have to jump through hoops of close to 40 different government agencies. State Historical Society, FAA, EPA, and the list goes on & on. The tower site had more core samples & soil profiles taken than Carter's has pills. The State Archeologist was out there monkeying around one day when the wind chill was -30. Any agency could have put the kibosh on the project at any time, and we did have to change the location because the State Historical Society was afraid the Willa Catheterites would be traumatized if they walked out the door of Willa's house and "maybe" saw a tower over half a mile away.

Don't these wind yahoos have to jump through a similar set of hoops?
Arguing with a Kansas State fan is like playing chess with a pigeon.

No matter how good you are, the pigeon is just going to s*** on the chessboard and strut around like it won anyway.

"Don't these wind yahoos have to jump through a similar set of hoops?"

The answer to that is evidently a resounding 'well, maybe......"

Some (hearsay, from good source) have evidently been sited in flyways where so many eagles--and other birds--hit them that they got a guy who's job is to pick them up and get rid of the bodys.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
