Gunshots Fired at Well Site!

      
For those that didn't think it would come to this...guess again. I'm not sure if it's the first, but my gut tells me it won't be the last. My gut also tells me to question whether this incident was staged by the NG folks themselves to further their cause against all us nasty, tree-hugging, anti-drilling fracktivists.

There was a very clear message sent by the natural gas industry in their $20 million lawsuit that hit the news a few days ago, and there's a very clear message in this latest incident. If not already there, this is about to move beyond ugly.

Anyway, took a road trip yesterday to see my first Penn State football game in ~10 years. The weather held out, the boys in blue & white prevailed, and we made it home safely after the tailgate party & nap.

For those that haven't been to Happy Valley lately...here are a few pics to give you an idea of how the natural gas industry is spending their advertising $ to target the next generation of PSU decision-makers, as well as their parents, grandparents, siblings, alumni...

Yes, Chesapeake Energy is a major sponsor of PSU football...
  
As is Williams Energy...
  

One of my favorite things to do is walk around PSU's expansive campus at all hours of the day & night and take pics, pics, and more pics. Here are just a few.


You can't get near this iconic site during the day, but no one seems to be around at night and before sunrise in the morning.
 

Below: I think Dr. Terry Engelder has an office in this building.


The coal-buring power plant on campus..site of many protests.


Below: Several of the many pics taken in Beaver Stadium...



Below: Don't know why, but this PSU statue made me think of people who have leased their land for gas drilling...


Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks.
