Take the PVP Poll: Is Northrup's door really always open?

Yesterday, this publication asked for a statement from Natural Resources in reaction to shale gas company SWN's claim of physical assaults on some staff. We heard from all others we contacted, but DNR refused to answer our inquiries via e-mail and telephone. We simply wanted to know when the Minister knew about the physical assaults. But, the department's communications advisors, Ann Bullmonteith and Steve Benteau, didn't deign to professionally acknowledge us. A "No comment at this time" would've sufficed. But stone silence prevailed. Since the Minister claims his door is always open, we wonder if that's true or just lip service. You decide. Take the poll at the right.

  4. They're just hoping you go away. Obviously they don't know you.

  5. Your trouble with DNR reminds me of that line in that movie Jerry Maguire where he pleads, "Help me...Help me help you..." It's like DNR doesn't want to help itself by speaking to you. Shooting themselves in the foot.

  6. Mr. Northrup is a good man. The people at DNR are idiots for the most part.
    They talk about assaults on the seismic crews....in Sussex the oil and gas "rig guys" would go to the local bar and end up in fights assaulting the hometown guys. The Telegraph Journal even reported on it this way.
