A political battle has broken out between Pennsylania legislators over whether the state’s booming natural gas industry is spreading STD’s. A Democatic Rep. wrote a letter accusing the government of downplaying the impact of drilling crews on communities, including noise, traffic and “patronizing bars at night” and “spreading sexually transmitted diseases among the womenfolk”.
- Apparently before going into politics, this guy was a writer for “Little House on the Prarie”.
- Who would have thought drilling could lead to the spread of STD’s?
- I would think “natural gas” would really cut down on romantic encounters with “the womenfolk”.
- Finally! The real reason some people are against drilling in Alaska! They don’t want to “spread sexually transmitted diseases among the caribou-folk”!
