One of the things I like best about Homer is that friends can disagree and remain friends. A friend of mine wrote last week’s Point of View in support of SB 21, the oil tax give away. It read like a BP press release, full of unsupported statistics and misleading facts. He could not be more wrong.
In 1975, right out of high school, I went to work on the pipeline for a year. I then worked my way through Harvard University in the oil field. After college, I held a number of jobs in Prudhoe from field engineer to maintenance scheduling supervisor field wide for SOHIO. These were the early days when liquor flowed and tongues were loose. We had just built the pipeline and were building out the field.
