Remember when the Journal Sentinel urged regulators to allow the pipeline firm Enbridge to expand operations in Wisconsin - - but didn't highlight the company's already-tacky record in the state?
Well - - it's happened again.
Hard to keep track of these.
And I love the line in the news story describing a spill of 67,200 gallons as "minor."
You know - - like "minor" surgery. "Minor" when it happens to someone else!
Enbridge pipeline in Wisconsin ruptures
About 1,200 barrels of crude spilled into field

Enbridge said that a drop in pressure in Line 14 near Grand Marsh, Wis. was detected around 2:45 p.m. CMT Friday.
The line was immediately shut down and isolated. Emergency crews were then sent to the site.
About 1,200 barrels were released into a field off County Road G, initial estimates indicate. That works out to about 67,200 gallons.
