I really don't see why folks have a problem with it.

After all the country is in favor of killing kids and not having ID to vote, and sex before marriage and all the rest of the things that drag this country to the ground so why not destroy our historical sights too.

Many Dems would say we are just too old fashioned and that we should get with the current generation..

So tear down the ranch and proceed with the future..

This is sarcasm for those of you who flip out about now.

Sorry: to me, they look surreal.

I agree with Curly about the windmills looking surreal, especially at dawn or dusk.

I am so sad that the oil wells are spoiling the "untouched" view in ND. I know it is progress but I can't help but feel sad about what is gone. I also dislike the look of all those ugly windmills on the way to Bismarck. I guess it is progress but they are ugly and that is not disputable.

I bet ol Teddy would have loved an oil well outside his door. The state of ND issues the permits to drill so don't blame the oil companies where they are drilling. If the state don't want them there they don't issue a permit, that's to simple isn't it.
