After Krancer doggy comment, Delaware lobs back


Back atcha, Delaware is saying to Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Mike Krancer.

On Tuesday, Krancer said at a meeting in Wayne County that Delaware "smells like the tail of a dog" because of its opposition to natural gas drilling regulations proposed for the Delaware River Basin.  A commission that oversees the basin has instituted a moratorium until rules can be adopted.

A spokesman for Delaware Gov. Jack Markell has responded. 

"I'm not sure the governor gives a frack about his comments," Brian Selander  told the Wilmington News-Journal. "Pennsylvania's chief environmental officer spewing noxious rhetoric into Delaware does little to inspire confidence that his office has the inclination or competence to ensure this drilling is done in a manner that protects Delaware's water resources."

Meanwhile, there remains no clarification about Krancer's other comment -- that Delaware is shaped  like a dog with a tail.
