I live in North Dakota. In the Oil Patch. It's an industrialized disaster area. Look at the picture. ..you want to see, smell, and inhale that everyday?

Great to see there are at least a few people left that have the drive to do something with their lives other than collect welfare benefits.

Perhaps the headline should say "come" or "move" to ND? It sure beats the last few decades when all the young people were leaving for Minneapolis.

Think, we could have growth too, if we'd stop trying to limit sand mining. We have a resource that now has value, whereas before this was marginal land for farming or building.

The Badlands of North Dakota will never be the same.We need the oil,but at what cost to the land and the people who live there.Some where down the road, it will bite us in the ass.

@9moons I agree, I'm sure the water and air is contaminated. Who in their right mind would want to live there? No matter how much they pay me, my health is first.
