T. Boone Pickens
Much has been made of the Pickens Plan. He met yesterday for 90 minutes with John McCain in Aspen, and then later with Harry Reid to peddle his concept for generating 20 percent of America's electricity by wind in the next 10 years. I don't deny that Pickens, the Swiftboat financier, sits close to Dick Cheney on the list of the country's Most Evil Oil Men. And that there must be some sort of Insidious Plot behind his "plan." But who cares? If it takes Satan himself (herself?) to do show that renewable energy can be profitable, then so be it. Go laugh your way to the bank T. Boone.
