Dear Editor: We Energies is giving out cookie cookbooks again. Here's a recipe that Wisconsin's worst polluter omitted:

Coal Cookies

2 cups "coal dust"


1 tablespoon "mercury"

(vanilla extract)

3/4 cup "arsenic"

(cocoa powder)

2 cups all-purpose "fly ash"


2 1/2 sticks "coal slurry," at room temperature

(unsalted butter)

2 large "coal chunks"


1 teaspoon "lead"

(baking soda)

1/2 teaspoon "bottom ash"


More coal dust, for garnish

This may help us keep in mind what We Energies is really feeding us. Every day.

Carl Lindner
