Karen Maute is against uranium mining. Who Knew?! (I edited the word in the headline to make it family-friendly, but you know what I wanted to say.)
Writer: Just who are VUI’s investors? (Thanks, R&B. I never would have known that was a letter to the editor if you hadn’t put “Writer” in that headline. Sheesh.)
Let me get this straight. Karen Maute has a problem with one person (who was cleared to vote by legal counsel) out of a whole committee voting to fund a study of uranium mining. Let’s assume that Maute’s contention actually has some value (bear with me, people). The motion still passes unanimously even with the abstention. Big Frickin’ Deal.
Later in the letter, Karen Maute delivers this piece of Front Page Breaking Headline News…
I don’t believe there is any way uranium can be “safely” mined.
STOP THE PRESSES!
But wait, this letter’s still got enough for a Bucket-O-Irony award! In Bad-Nancy-Grace style, she asks
one two three four five open-ended semi-accusatory questions trying to bring ethical doubts about potential situations and then gives absolutely no answers to those questions. That would be because she has absolutely no idea of the answers, but who needs facts when you can scare the hell out of people who don’t think for themselves? If you haven’t noticed by now, scaring the hell out of the people who don’t think for themselves is the one of the key tactics of the anti-uranium mining crowd.
What do you know? Karen Maute is against poisoning the environment, yet she has no problem poisoning the well.
