Good Day World!
I've got my morning cup of coffee in a to-go cup because it's time to hear from People-On-The-Street (a new feature for this blog). In other words, let's see what the average American has to say about the subject for the day.
Today's subject is Wind Power:
Dave: Good morning sir! What do you think about clean alternative power sources? Like wind for example.
Man with MAGA hat: Windmills are horrible! Did you know they cause cancer?
Dave: Actually,that's not true. There's no scientific evidence that shows such a link exists. Where did you hear that?
Man with MAGA hat: Right from the top. President Donald Trump. Make American Great Again!
Dave: Thank you sir...
Hello, miss! Do you have a moment?
Dave: What do you think about wind power as a viable energy source?
Woman: Unlike our creep-in-command, I think it's a great alternative. Did you hear Trump claimed windmills caused cancer? That asshole wants to take us back to medieval times using wood and coal for heat.
Dave: Yes, I did. Thank you for your time.
Excuse me sir...do you have a moment?
Man: Depends. What do you want?
Dave: I'll be quick. Just one question.
Do you think wind power has promise?
Man: Listen...anything is better than coal and nuclear power plants. If someone figured out a way to get alternative power from trash, I'd be all for it.
Dave: Then you'll be happy to hear there are waste-to-energy technologies being explored as we speak. Thank you for your time.
Excuse me miss...may I ask you a question this morning?
Woman: Sure. But I ain't got a lot of time, the mission serves breakfast until 10 a.m. After that, I'm shit out of luck.
Dave: I'll be brief. Do you think wind parks are a good energy source for the future?
Woman: What the hell are wind parks? If I'd of known you was crazy, I wouldn't have stopped. I'm out of here...

That concludes my interviews for today. Look for future People-On-The-Street interviews.
