Burgoo: Sept. 28

Something to stew over

September 28, 2012 

"When the Republicans say there is a war on coal, in a market sense, yes, there is a war ... In the same sense that when we started carrying BlackBerrys, it was a war on the black rotary-dial phone; in the same sense that when we started using Macs and PCs, it was a war on typewriters; in the same sense that the horseless carriage was a war on horses; in the same sense that refrigerators were a war on salted meats; in the same sense that the telegraph was a war on carrier pigeons."

Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., during debate of the Stop the War on Coal Act
