Where did the vindy dig this guy up? Why not interview a 2nd or third generation of Youngstowner who has lived in poverty? It's time the few of us that did not have the good sense to move out of this area wake up and smell the damned coffee. We need the jobs!
@sheepleherder, please site the study not funded by the oil and gas industry that explains the huge amount of those jobs you think are coming our way. You, ironically, sound like the sheeple.
Like Mr. Beck, I too am very concerned about the future of rural PA and Ohio. I'm sure he could stand to make a large chunk of change, but instead hasn't become drunk over dollar signs. It shows a person of character and principle.
I was also initially intrigued by fracking, but became skeptical of all the lofty claims and brisk speed the process was being implemented. A little research told a far different story than the sparkling headlines.

SheepleHerder - It is quite obvious from all your comments that you do not know the meaning of research and you readily drink the koolaide (hype the industry generates to create mindless support) but before you run out and start working on a fracking site you should read the following...
Maybe one of your kids needs this kind of job - mine don't! We have paid taxes on our farm for a century and Corbett wants to eliminate taxes for Shell to rape and pillage my land, my kids' inheritance?!? PLEASE! I don't suffer fools gladly!
