The irony of views on oil drilling

Letter to the editor

Posted: Sunday, January 01, 2006

Recently, Sen. Maria Cantwell made national news by spearheading efforts to further delay oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve. On the day following her senate victory I saw her being glorified in a NWNC news clip. Ironically, the very next news clip was about Maria Cantwell investigating the high price of gasoline that people now pay in Washington. This situation is reminiscent of the moment in the movie "Gladiator" when Maximus says to Commodus, "the time for glorifying yourself is coming to an end."
