Andrew Cuomo Comes Under The Spotlight

After his triumph on gay marriage, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is taking heat from the left on his attempts to lift the ban on hydrofracking.
I'm concerned, of course, being a resident of the city that stores its drinking water in some of the poorest counties in the state that my water will be filled with all kinds of byproducts of this dirty process.
Cuomo gives assurances of oversight, and that's comforting to a point.
But what's more comforting to me is, he's appointed Robert F. Kennedy, Jr to the oversight board. A former cousin, yes, but an unparalleled figure in environmental causes.
I guess I can live with this.
