Butch the Bomb Train

We received a magazine today with the last page oddly title The Last Laugh because the column was on Butch the Bomb Train.  Its conclusion was to stop unsafe trains loaded with crude oil.  It did not mention approving Keystone Light (whoops, sorry, XL, but wouldn’t it be great?) but it did mention infrastructure.  

If you address the trains then you must address Keystone XL.  Perhaps there is a rational argument to be against both.  Let’s hear it but do not duck the issue.  Shutting down oil extraction in North Dakota is ducking the issue.  Shutting down oil extraction in Canada is beyond the pale.

Failure to approve Keystone XL has caused a potential problem.  Approving it will reduce the problem.  If Keystone XL is approved then it is a possibility that we need Keystone XLI (if you want to go the roman numeral route).  The success of XL would increase the probability of XLI.
