Sled if a school got its drinking water from a well, would you still be opposed to school-proximity regulations and allow drilling rigs wherever the drillers saw fit? If not, why not?

Ken, you need to understand that injecting bmillions of gallons of proprietary (secret) chemicals into the earth creates temporary jobs! What's that compared to some imaginary threat to schoolchildren? These kids gotta take one for the team and do the right thing for the economy.

This insane law would kill the already-struggling drilling companies. They would have to hire MORE people (create MORE jobs) to move the wellheads 650 feet. This would reduce their meager profits to almost nothing. I've seen the ads and I know that the oil and gas industry creates billions of American jobs. It would be unAmerican to force them to create a few more. If they had to waste their money on wages, they couldn't buy the "come to the Gulf Coast this Winter" ads.

COGCC would require fracking fluid in the school drinking fountains if it made oil and gas $0.000001 cheaper to produce.

First you bash your mom, then you encourage speed skiing, and now you brag about abandoning your family and job, pursuing snow like a drug addict. I'm glad I'm the first to pile on this week, Eugene.

...And Huppert has had that ability for years but somehow succeeded without falling to the temptations you cite. Could it be that his motivation was not a personal profit motive but merely the desire to do a good job? Why should he take your advice and "form his own private business"? Seems like he is doing fine right where he is with none of the hassles of being a business owner. We are lucky to have him. Maybe Rex will hire him away.

CMC is free to outsource food service to a private company, but apparently is choosing its best option.

Huppert is already doing 800-1,000 meals a day for a student body of >2,300, and doing it very well. Only Ski Corp. slings more hash than that. Think they could compete?

I don't think adding another 226 students (10%) is going to drastically change anything.

...what private enterprise? Isn't this a bizarre case of the government (SSSD) competing with the government (CMC)?

It looks like Huppert, a government employee, is running a tight ship that provides an excellent product at a reasonable cost. This socialism has gotta be stopped.

Yeah, those Omaha Beach, Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and WTC government employees were a real embarrassment. If there had only been some corporate profit on the line they could really have accomplished something!
