Revisiting "2001", getting oddysied again

I'm enjoying watching “2001: A Space Odyssey” on TCM. First time I saw it, we’d been partying and indulging all day and decided to go to the after-midnight showing in Hollywood. We got there just prior to the movie starting, and the only seats left were in the middle of the front row. After that final sequence they had to just about peel us out of the upholstery.

Colorado GOP Blocks Nation's First Well-mapping Requirement

Colorado Republicans used a late-night filibuster Monday to block a first-of-its-kind requirement that oil and gas producers provide the locations of all their gas lines.

Democrats who rule the House were planning to pass the bill before midnight, their deadline to get it to the governor’s desk before the Legislature concludes work for the year.

But the chamber’s 28 Republicans successfully extended debate, saying the mapping requirement isn’t needed and wouldn’t improve public safety.

The bill was in response to a deadly home explosion in April that was traced to gas seeping from an old severed underground pipeline, called a flow line...


This is of growing concern to me and my neighbors, here in a county with over 21000 wells. Firestone, the community where the house exploded, is in the county. We're used to the GOP taking the industry's side against the health and safety of residents; we're also very unhappy with Hickenlooper's stance.
