I definitely feel bad about it, and I apologize.  Call it insufficient appreciation of the problem’s magnitude.  As I read about it today, I became quite sad.  It’s one of my favorite parts of the world, after all.

I also feel for the businesspeople, from the shrimp boat captains to the restaurateurs to the property managers, who are really going to be punched in the stomach by this thing.  It’s an awfully shaky economy in which to try to hoe a new row on the spur of the moment, and some won’t make it.  God be with them.

  1. I cried when I saw the damage done by Exxon Valdez and again during Desert Storm. I pray that they contain this somehow before it wreaks havoc on the coastline. This is just terrible. 🙁

  2. This is awful! Not only are the people who earn their livelihoods in jeopardy, the entire coast and tourism is in trouble if this is not contained soon. It breaks my heart to see this.

    What I’d like to know is…why don’t these oil companies have measures already in place for this kind of fiasco. I saw on the news yesterday that one of the ‘fixes’ is going to take 2-3 MORE weeks before it can be put into place and even then they aren’t sure it’s going to work. Another one (drilling a well opposite the leaking one and filling it with concrete) will take 3 MONTHS to complete.

    Come on guys, get with the program.

  3. Cheryl, I became sad enough yesterday that I wondered what the hell I was thinking joking about it. It’s bad. Breaks my heart.

    azn8tive, exactly. I’ve found myself wondering about all the tentative language. You guys don’t have plans for this? WTF?

  4. Instead of huffing and puffing about Arizona the administration should have been moving swiftly to minimize the damage. All I can say is, Heck of a job, Barry.

  5. Obviously, Obama hates white people.
