This spill is on its way to being the biggest ecological disaster in US history, following less than five years after the biggest manmade disaster in US history. We don't need this. Have you seen the lines at all of our seafood restaurants, as people race in to get what may be their last taste of local oysters for a long, long time? Have you seen the meetings of shellshocked fishermen, as they contemplate the loss of their livelihood, possibly for a decade? After five years of fighting back after Katrina, this is too cruel.
There's plenty of blame to be assessed--but right now we have to find some way to stop this underwater gusher and keep the majority of this oil from destroying our already battered wetlands. Pray for Louisiana and the Gulf Coast, folks. We need all the help we can get.
