OPINION: I get sick of timid people.
I'm prepared to double that $200 million the high-powered energy consortium is putting in and I can drill any man under the table.

We might give grinning sheriff Tim and the simple townsfolk their lousy 5 per cent if our accountant says we need the PR, but we don't really.

We gonna bust this place wide open. Come hell or black water.
