I figured Ohioans would hear about it and vote to keep their electricity prices from "skyrocketing" (Obama 2008). Natural gas users should not get complacent because Obama wants to tax and curtail that too. Anyway when I looked up the war on coal and mostly the media ignored it except to say 1) there's no war on coal and 2) coal is bad and dirty and needs to be phased out.
When they came to my daughter, she said she was a "Republican."
This caused her "friends" to start sort of mildly ragging on her. Nothing serious. One of them said to her "so you're for fracking." I asked her "what's fracking" and she shrugged and said "I don't know."
