39. Look at the maps....
...go find someplace else. The expansive shorelines, mountains, deserts.... There is plenty of space elsewhere.

We have a well run nuclear facility supplying alternative energy to over half a million homes and businesses. I repeat, we have alternative energy in our region.

Come back and talk to us after you all - everywhere, have built a nuclear plant or met the needs of a half-million homes and businesses by some alternative means. If you all did this then the oil crisis would be over.

Meanwhile, why are you picking on us? Because we have Ted Kennedy and it's fun to pick on the Kennedys?
