The First Step Has Been Taken

The Senate has lifted the ban against drilling in the ANWR. Barbara Boxer is livid. Six Republicans -- John McCain of Arizona, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, Mike DeWine of Ohio, Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island and Gordon Smith of Oregon -- joined most Democrats in opposing drilling. My favorite comment was by Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis. who said, "Drilling in the arctic refuge is something that has been, and should continue to be, discussed in an open debate instead of as part of a backdoor maneuver." Well, it's been discussed for about 30 years now. What else needs to be said?
