Another week to add to BPs disaster

I'm so tired of waking up in trepidation of the news I may hear in the morning.

No one "in charge" of this disastrophe except Louisiana seems to feel the pain everytime oil comes ashore on our coast. Others should because the Corexit is probably killing or mutating sealife that comes in contact with it. The world spins happily along while hundreds if not thousands of fishers lose their means to make a living because of the disastrophe.

Too many people are trying to mix politics into this. Sure, politics play a part BUT - to many of us affected by this circus of fuckups - politics should not be made a part of this.

WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO PROTECT OUR COAST BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.

There will be time for finger pointing, for discovery panels, for 'what should we do next time' committees.

The fragile nurseries of Louisiana are at stake here. Our wildlife are at stake here. Right now the oil is coming ashore, destroying brown pelican eggs and lord knows what else.

It's a depressing world here in southeast Louisiana.
