(But What Would Ivor Say? WWIS?)
Moderate to heavy oil washed onto almost 100 miles of Louisiana’s shoreline this week, the federal government said Friday, and Plaquemines Parish officials say they’re feeling the brunt with oil still saturating marshes, beaches and coastal passes. The Deepwater Horizon Unified Command reported Friday that light to trace oil affected another 200 miles of the state’s shoreline, according to its weekly report.
~Editilla Can't Stands No'Mo~Where's the Easter Bunny gonna hide his eggs now? Who we gonna'call? Coast Busters? WTF will it take to REALIZE that the oil will keep on keepin'on? Have our Feds sold us out? Well, Goddamnit?
