A Baby Step . . . 2

. . . but still a step:

The state is giving $800,000 in federal stimulus money to James Madison University for the development of a small wind training and testing facility in Harrisonburg.

Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, Virginia’s chief jobs creation officer, announced the money during an appearance today at the State Wind Energy Symposium hosted by the Virginia Wind Energy Collaborative and held at JMU.

    $800,000 is a drop in the bucket, compared to what the state spends on having cops prey on our citizens as they drive to work each day.

    Imagine if the State didn’t spend all that money on cops hiding in bushes with radar guns, and instead spent those funds on entrepreneurial, energy development projects.

    As a driver, I rather want those cops hiding in the bushes with radar guns picking off the idiots, but I otherwise agree with you.

    But it is something positive from a Republican administration.  Perhaps a little positive reinforcement will lead to more.  Successive approximations of the desired behavior and all that.
