He Has A Point

(Evil) Glenn Reynolds has a scoop about "Papa" Teddy's objection to wind turbines that is starting to get Americans (even liberals) pissed off at one of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate. Kennedy claims to be opposed to a Cape Cod wind turbine because it would, "reduce tourists to that area," but everyone knows that it's really because Kennedy is a die-hard NIMBY Liberal. He will support the most radical left wing idea, as long as it doesn't affect him.
One of Glenn's readers comments saying;
"There are over 8,000 graceful, slender bright white windmills just west of my house, in the Tehachapi hills. They are quite nice to look at; some would even say lovely. They ATTRACT TOURISTS. People come from all over the world to take photos. They spend money at the hotels and restaurants, then leave. Foreign film makers come here to use the wind farms as backdrops for weird movies or music videos. They rent stuff, take photos, spend money at the hotels and restaurants, then leave. The point is, wind farms are an attraction, and can be an attractive attraction. All it takes is the proper attitude."

She even sent this picture. She likes the windmills, and I agree that they look nice. But I like the foreground more!
