Anti-Drilling Site Daily Kos Runs Keystone Pipeline Ad [Screen Shot]
Our daily trawl of the news takes us far and wide. Every day MDN editor Jim Willis wades through the mental equivalent of manure up to his neck–so you don’t have to.

We usually skip on by such articles in an effort to control our blood pressure.
