A Breath (Mint) of Fresh Air
Pulling on my pair of patented Glenn Reynolds short-hit pajamas, I must note that the blog ImNotEmeril did some AutoCAD calculations anent the proposed oil-drilling site in ANWR (the Arctic Natural Wildlife Refuge), and found the following:
If the entire Arctic National Wildlife Refuge were the size of a football field, the area being proposed for drilling would be much smaller than a Tic Tac breath mint. Estimates of the oil reserves that can be extracted from this Tic Tac range between 10 and 20 years at current consumption. [Emphasis added]
Can I add anything to that? No.

"Can I add anything to that? No"
I think you should have added one "indeed" or at least a "Heh."

Once again, the lefty extremists have blocked the will of a clear majority of Americans while at the same time defying common sense.
