Gulf Quotations

George H. W. Bush

Is it in our national interest to overheat the planet? That's the question Obama faces in deciding whether to approve Keystone XL, a 2,000-mile-long pipeline that will bring 500,000 barrels of tar-sand oil from Canada to oil refineries on the Gulf of Mexico.

I even slept occasionally under a pier on the Gulf Coast.
Andy Andrews
