Much as I disagree with the Keystone and no matter how many petitions I've signed against it; in the end the pipeline in some shape or form will be built. That doesn't mean we'll be giving up the fight but in the end we'll just have been tilting at windmills. Oh, well as I like to say; it's better to die on your feet a free man than to serve on your knees as a coward. Soldier on.....

Noted. Thanks, Cal. I wish them much luck in their endeavor, and wholeheartedly support their efforts. I believe it was Bill McKibbon who said that if this pipeline's built, it's "game over for the planet."
