  • The Last Barrel


    Kurt Abraham

    Forgive me, our dedicated readers, for I am in a foul mood this month. It is not a happy time to be in the U.S. We have a federal administration that seems hell-bent on side-stepping Congress and the U.S. Constitution at every turn. We also have a Supreme Court chief justice, who, by all appearances, seems to be mentally out-to-lunch. Then there is the never-ending presidential election season that is increasingly irritating. On top of that, the federal government manages to bungle or worsen every angle of the U.S. energy system that it touches.
