Kickass, the doorstop dog, says he sometimes wakes up from a nap with questions that just seem to have incubated while he slept. Here’s one: So they want to build a multi-million dollar transmission line from Iowa to Wisconsin to transport energy generated by Iowa wind. That would be the same wind that, once it leaves Iowa, blows across Wisconsin? Wouldn’t it make more sense to build windmills in Wisconsin? Maybe only a dog would suspect the devious intent of the transmission line crowd. Their ambitions to have rate payers finance ugly transmission lines—that will obviously be obsolete within decades, knows no bounds. The way they snaked that big ugly line around much of Madison a few years ago was like stringing a bard wire necklace around the neck of a nice old lady. The keeper and his ilk need to wake up and sniff the Iowa wind.
