On Cutting the Grass and Fracking the People
This Is Getting Ridiculous Dept: At two schools in Carlisle, Penn., sheep are cutting the grass around solar panels to save the district $15,000. At the same time, Gov. Tom Corbett has cut $2 million in education, laid off teachers and cut extracurricular programs while giving tax breaks of $833 million to frackers and other corporate special interests in the nation's only major natural gas-producing state without a drilling tax. Oh yeah, and he gets lots of money from those same companies. To be clear here: Sheep are cool, but the discrepancies mount.
