20. well...I'm told the windturbines have a few bullet holes...
Edited on Sun Feb-14-10 01:49 AM by Liberty Belle
some of the neighbors haven't been too happy about these things through the years and this is redneckville. But the bullets never stopped 'em before. Not sure how someone would sabotage the things.

There has been eco-terrorism in SD before, but those guys always leave notes claiming credit.
