Reality bites, or, windmill somebody else’s neighborhood

There’s the sight of the thing, the noise, blades throw ice, gears lock up and burn, it will kill birds, it’s ugly …

One neighbor: “I bought property up there, built a house, because it’s beautiful, and the ‘forever wild’ promise that was made.”

Not so, says Mr. Hirsch: “Behind it (opposition), I believe, is the pollution of jealousy and the pollution of stupidity.”

Nothing builds good will like calling your neighbors jealous and stupid.
