It is sickening. I haven't heard anything about my working down there but my resume is in.

Ignorance is bliss. We are a stupid species.

I don't understand why more wasn't done to contain the oil around the spill site. A flotilla of ships and boats with booms mopping up the oil before it got far away. Shameful.

No words.

Sweetheart this is unbelievable. Thanks for posting the link, I've just watched all this whilst being pressures by the cat ( Oscar the Grouch) to let him out. There is a feeling over here that BP have been the whipping boy, that its not all their fault and in truth the UK haven't appreciated the US BP bashing. But when you see this, you just ask yourself is it really worth it, do we really need this stuff for us to feel good about ourselves. I hope the oil stops soon, but how long the damage will take to heal, only heaven knows. Its a damming testimony of our selfishness.

Syd,
Of course I would be happy that they received your very capable help down in the Gulf, however, I must say I find it really crappy that after spending your life protecting our oceans and cleaning trash on beaches up and educating youth about ecology, that you have to go and work to help clean this mess up. It makes feel sick. That said, I love and admire you for volunteering.

Jeannie,
We sure are a stupid species. I respect my dog more. At least she is not selfish and purposely cruel and greedy.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Dearest Findon,
I don't blame BP anymore than I blame any other big oil company or, for that matter, all of us for being oil greedy with our SUVs and 4 cars per household. This happened due to all of our greed (including mine, of course). We are all responsible. You are right in what you said in your comment.

Pat Oscar the Grouch for me. Give my regards to your Beautiful.

I love you lots,

SB

North West London Girl,
Me too, love. Me too.

Kisses,

Hell bent on our own destruction. What other animal enjoys crappin' in their own back yard as much as we do?

Selfishness and greed, the human race's greatest downfall.

Asshats.

Feels like doom bubbling in my chest.

You might be interested in putting the live video feed and the leak calculator widget on the blog, both available at: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/horizon-oil-spill.html . I know, it's hard to look at but the more people see it, the more they'll get it.

Reeny,
Well said, love.

Kathleen,
I'll check it out. Thank you.

Sweden,
I know, me too. But please don't.

Love to all,

SB
