BREAKING: MS Congressman Gene Taylor unloads on the BP spill response ~slabbed
~“I’m having a Katrina flashback. I haven’t seen this much stupidity, wasted effort, money and wasted resources, since then.”

Little spent on oil spill cleanup technology

Could 'toxic storm' make beach towns uninhabitable?
~Residents fear mass relocations should a hurricane kick the Gulf oil spill onto resort towns. ‘Hazmat cards’ are a hot commodity among residents, since they could be the key to return. Ron Greve expects the worst is yet to come in the oil spill drama that is haranguing beach towns all along the US Gulf Coast. So, like a growing number of residents, the Pensacola Beach solar-cell salesman took a hazardous materials class and received a “hazmat card” upon graduation. Those cards, says Mr. Greve, could become critical in coming weeks and months.
In the case of a hurricane hitting the 250-mile wide slick and pushing it over sand dunes and into beach towns, residents fear they’ll face not only mass evacuations, but potential permanent relocation. Storm-wizened locals know that it can take days, even weeks, for roads to open and authorities to allow residents to return to inspect the damage and start to rebuild after a hurricane moves through.

Gravity's Rainbow.

Today in BP Oil Disaster: Day 68 ~Gambit~Stepped onto my balcony this morning with a mug of French roast and got socked in the nose with oilstench. It’s particularly bad out there today. It smells like a tire fire with some chemicals mixed in — or, as someone put it recently, “burning GI Joes.”
~Editilla Ironyllas~ We just can't out-run the irony of that simile.

Can Mabus save us?

Blowout Likely From Deteriorating BP Oil Casing
~Fellowship of the Mind

“The more oil we see coming out, the more it tells you that the whole casing system is deteriorating. The fact that more oil would be coming out rather than less oil, would suggest that the construction within the pipe is offering no resistance whatsoever, and we’re just getting a gusher.

*First there was Simmons, who is actually not a nut-case, and now we have a former CEO of Shell. Not saying the Oil Industry writ large has anything but their wallet in their ass, but jus'sayin: "they" always start telling you (small at first like this) what is going to happen, floating it out across the news media to get the populace used to the idea. Then PYOW! GODZILLA!!!

But Wait!!!! dirtycoast Watch as Lenny Kravitz crashes the Voice Of Praise Choir New Orleans in Jackson Square
