No Frack

Where the Frack Are We?

The gas industry’s latest promotional campaign for Barnett Shale drilling reminds us that fracking — pumping the ground with toxic chemicals to get at that precious gas — is as American as pickup trucks and Little League....

Betty Brink
Joe Palazzolo’s friends might be forgiven for thinking that’s not his real first name. Surely it should be “Job.” Palazzolo, of course, is the former assistant principal who blew the whistle on malfeasance by top admini...
