As a blue-collar Wyoming resident, I feel compelled to respond to Kerasote's attack. In Wyoming, it's the oil and gas extraction industries that foot the bill for our schools, highways, and other state-funded projects. Other people are up in arms over the current cost of heating oil, gasoline, and diesel fuel. It's easy to complain about it. Here in Wyoming, we're doing something about it-we're making more. When you all quit using it, we'll quit making it.
