Really really bad oil spill.
I've been following the developments regarding the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and have been trying to think of a productive post since the beginning. I still haven't thought of anything groundbreaking to say, so I'm posting anyway, to acknowledge that it is utterly devastating. It makes me so angry and I wonder how it's allowed to happen. I hope the investigation will be thorough and not hesitate to bring those responsible to account (in this case, BP) in a significant way. This level of risk to ecosystems and animals, not to mention the livelihood and physical health of many, many people, is not acceptable, and I'm happy to read Obama will not be approving any new offshore drilling until the matter is investigated.
