Gee, thanks, Parkinson (and KDHE)

Jobs trump public health and the environment, as usual in Kansas. Even though most of the power goes to Colorado, which is cutting back on coal plants within their state, we trumpet the benefit of some temporary construction jobs (often using out-of-state companies) and we become the outhouse of neighboring states. Textbook case of low self-esteem. "Go ahead and dump on me, I deserve it, in fact I welcome it."

Oh so true. And the saddest truth is that we are sold this long-lasting disaster as a jobs-creator, and as is pointed out, many of the jobs will go to out of state companies and the workers they bring in.
