Holy cats! Sheldon & Co. must live in PA. Fracking is all the rage here these days because of natural gas underground in the Marcellus Shale reserve.
The upside is Pennsylvanians going back to work and revitalizing industries in other states as well.
The downside is reports of pollution of local waterways from leaking liquids used in the fracking process.
I have to say though, yesterday I sucked in a breath with Gramp's announcement. The reason I keep comin' back to Sheldon every day is the comics ability to both be humorous and be able to tug at the ol' heartstrings so effectively.
