The Eiffel Tower and Kemper: Innovation Always Has Its Critics


Back in the 1880s, a few out-of-touch pundits had harsh words for the Eiffel Tower, calling it a:

High and skinny pyramid of iron ladders, this giant ungainly skeleton upon a base that looks built to carry a colossal monument of Cyclops, but which just peters out into a ridiculous thin shape like a factory chimney. — Guy de Maupassant, Writer.

Truly tragic street lamp. — Leon Bloy, Novelist and Essayist

Hole-riddled suppository — Joris-Karl Huysmans, Novelist

Confused and deformed — François Coppée, Poet

Today, a small group of similarly minded “thinkers” are trying to stop progress by preventing innovation at Mississippi’s landmark Kemper Power Plant.

The Kemper Project is bringing $600 million, thousands of jobs and many other benefits to the state of Mississippi.

We invite you to browse this website to learn about Kemper and join the conversation with us on Facebook or Twitter. You can also roll your mouse over the postcard to share it.
