OMG, it is really disastrous on the Gulf Coast. I can't bear what is happening to the environment, to the livelihood of those along the coast, to the beautiful beaches.
I found this quote to be the height of stupidity:
"The ocean will take care of this on its own if it was left alone and left out there. It's natural. It's as natural as the ocean water is."-- Rush Limbaugh, quoted by the St. Petersburg Times, arguing that a cleanup of the oil spill off the Lousiana coast is unnecessary.
I am somewhat, shall we say, less than a fan of Rush Limbaugh. This quote shows why.
