“I think they should name it something better. The top ends up flatter, but we’re not talking about Mount Everest. We’re talking about these little knobby hills that are everywhere out here.”

— Kentucky U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul (R), in an interview with Details magazine, on mountain top removal coal mining, noting many people “would say the land is of enhanced value, because now you can build on it.”
