    Don't Lose Sight: Eleven People Murdered

                     The Gulf as we know it, is dieing. All those who had deliberately gambled with the fate of marine and wildlife in and around the Gulf seem to be walking away with little or no accountability. The finger pointing and...

    Angry And Sad, Nope...

    I wouldn't say angry and sad are quite strong enough to convey how I feel. Pissed and hopeless....not quite strong enough still, but perhaps a little closer to accurate. I mean really, we can put men on the f*cking moon and beyond but we can't stop the oil from gushing into our...

    Response To Gulf Oil Spill Ecological Disaster: Too Little; Too Late

    BP: We feel terrible about what has happened and we are going to make it right. Not that we think it is all our fault. And we don't think it is going to be that bad, ultimately. We are optimistic. And we understand how much the gulf fisherman have been affected by the spill...
