First off, This article makes me love David Cook even more than I did. He "gets it."
Second, aae1049, your comment is valid but reflects a lack of long-term thinking. I can only imagine how many years it took to make electricity viable. When you're innovative, it takes time for ideas to take off, and even longer for people to understand why they should pay for it. I love that we're in such an innovative forward-thinking city, though.
