The Wall Street Journal, which could not resist a Don Quixote reference, reports today on Alec Baldwin’s attempts to install a wind turbine at his East Hampton mansion, despite strict rules against development, some of which he fought for himself. “I want to build something that is environmentally forward-thinking,” said the often angry and politically active actor. “I’m not building a satellite dish so I can watch the Knicks game.” If he can flex his celebrity influence and get approved, we know just the guy for the job.
