The NIMBY's of ANWR

The NIMBY's of ANWR --

1. Is a new FPS game for the XBox 360?
2. Is a new children's book series written by Madonna?
3. Describes people who don't want oil drilling in a remote, isolated portion of Alaska?

If you chose 3. you win the prize, which is continued free access to this blog.

For those that don't know it, NIMBY stands for "Not in my back yard". Only in this case, we have people that don't want drilling in a state and a location within in that state where 99.9999999% of us will never ever never go visit. Perhaps we need a new acronym for the folks that oppose drilling for oil in the Alaska National Wildlife Reserve (ANWR). Let's see, NIMANWR just doesn't roll off the tongue, does it?

Well, George Will has some things rolling off his tongue, er, PC about the ANWR drilling and it showed up in the Washington Post the other day. Read it here and wonder why such a "no-brainer" as drilling in the ANWR has yet to happen.

I blame GWB.
