Keystone Pipeline again in the news

Hmmm. TransCanada has temporarily shut down its existing 2100 mile Keystone pipeline after tests showed "possible safety issues." This is the pipeline that many folks don't think exists. But it already moves about 500,000 barrels of crude a day from Alberta, Canada, to facilities in Illinois and Oklahoma.

The possible safety issues were found on the part of the pipeline that extends between Missouri and Illinois. And this is why I worry when so many folks demand that this pipeline extension be approved quickly. Keystone Kops will be needed to verify the safety of said pipeline.
