Those Crazy Cascabelles

Look at this wonderfully creative movie they made out in my favorite little desert hamlet. The movie is about their defeat of the proposed SunZia power lines that were to run right through the Pedro River valley which would have ruined the place. They fought hard and defeated the project! (Liner note: I happen to know that these people don’t do drugs, so even more kudos for their sober imaginative minds.)

  1. when the nuke plant in arizona needed lines to socal for energy giant, edison, the mandated public hearings met huge opposition. outcry was uniform and effective. the public utilities commission had no choice but to deny edison’s proposal.
    so edison’s attorneys waited a few months and appealed. the process started all over again.
    the citizens who protested couldn’t muster the time and energy to protest all over again. edison and its money/attorneys won. huge, ugly power lines defile land and sky clear across southern calif.
    the lesson; don’t get comfortable or celebrate.
