...Street. The guy who lives across the street - who probably hasn't slept a solid night since the grease sticks in the sky were installed - said there was a, um, "thud."

He's lucky he has a head, not that if he had been beheaded, "wind will save us" types would give a rat's ass.

One can never have enough poorly constructed unreliable and dangerous metal hovering over one's head, so they'll fork over another 3 million to replace the junkyard in the sky.

This should create "jobs! jobs! jobs!" since there are still 19 other ones waiting to fall down.

FENNER (AP) Authorities are investigating the collapse of a 187-ton windmill in a Fenner cornfield where it once stood.

Marvin DeKing lives across Buyea Road in Fenner and says he heard a loud bang about 3 or 4 a.m. on Sunday.

He says it wasnt until daylight that he learned that the more than 200-foot windmill across the road had fallen. No one was hurt.

Fenner windmill collapse

The bold is mine. This statement, "no one was hurt" makes the flying shards of metal as deadly as the tritium that uneducated anti-nukes always cry about as they work tirelessly to destroy climate change gas free infrastructure like the largest single source of climate change gas free energy in Vermont, the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.

The difference of course, between Vermont Yankee and the sky junkyard of course, is that Vermont Yankee is reliable and that it has worked for 38 years and will only be destroyed by ignorance and fear.

No word yet on how many people will be killed by the dangerous fossil fuel waste from all the trucks driving around trying to replace the junk heap.
