All Shale Tracy Rowlett!

Nice photo of Tracy Rowlett in this morning's New York Times, in a story about Chesapeake Energy Corporation's Shale.tv, due to launch sometime this month. As you no doubt recall, the former KTVT-Channel 11 anchor doesn't take kindly to folks who dismiss the site as an online informercial for the company, which has thus far sunk hundreds of wells in Tarrant and Johnson counties in recent years. Still, skepticism remains: “The purpose, in my opinion, is to prepare people for the problems that are coming,” Fort Worth Citizens Against Neighborhood Drilling Ordinance founder Don Young tells The Times. Which is part of the reason why Young's about to get going: "He plans to move out of town in a year." --Robert Wilonsky
