"I Just Hope It Works"

This goes along with my posts on environmentalism.

DALTON, Ga. - Here in the "Carpet Capital of the World," the vast manufacturing plants that supply almost half the nation's carpet also pump out reams of wasted scraps that eventually wind up in landfills.

Next month, the world's largest carpet maker plans to do something about the problem, opening a one-of-a-kind power plant that will be fueled by the 16,000 tons of overruns, rejects and remnants it turns out every year.

I spent a little time reading your blog and I thought I'd at least leave a note that I was here.

Enjoyed your blog. I try to find the political blogs because I can relate to them: liberal, conservative or moderate. Yours is actually one blog that uses reason and logic quite well. Most liberal blogs are soaked in emotionalism.

Independent, your language above implies that mine is a liberal blog! I truly *hope* that's not what you meant!

Sorry about that Darren. I know your blog is very conservative. I was just stating a point about liberal blogs in general.

Glad you came back and clarified :-)
