Medical Grade Stupidity

The citizens of Woodland, N.C. have spoken loud and clear: They don't want none of them highfalutin solar panels in their good town. They scare off the kids. "All the young people are going to move out," warned Bobby Mann, a local resident concerned about the future of his burg. Worse, Mann said, the solar panels would suck up all the energy from the Sun.

Another resident—a retired science teacher, no less—expressed concern that a proposed solar farm would block photosynthesis, and prevent nearby plants from growing. Jane Mann then went on to add that there seemed to have been a lot of cancer deaths in the area, and that no one could tell her solar panels didn't cause cancer. “I want information," Mann said. "Enough is enough."
There's one science teacher who apparently spent too many years conducting chemistry experiments without a fume hood.

I suppose that if they moved to Texas, they'd raise the average IQ in both states.

Brings to mind one of the lyrics from — I think it was "Annie Get Your Gun."

Folks are dumb
Where I come from
They ain't had no learnin'
Still they live to
A hundred and three
Doin' a whut comes natur-ally...

Yours crankily,
The New York Crank
