Maybe the folks in Washington, (and I am Democratic, Obama supporter), are not familiar with the label "graveyard of the Atlantic". They should be. Our tempestous weather off the coast, the depth of drilling necessary to find petrol, our coastal tourism, and the fragility of our commercial fishing industry make this idea, at best, foolhardy and at worst, plain, damn, stupid. If La. isn't a timely wake-up call, I don't know what could be. Yes, I do....a gooey, blackened coastline caused by what the "oil companies" would label (today) as "highly unlikely". Tell that to the "once-in-a-million" occurence in Louisana. It only takes one! Right Valdez? Everyone, everyone in this state should be in complete uproar over this. Don't let apathy prevail -- write, email, or phone your representatives (local, state, and national) and complain, complain, complain. The squeaky wheel gets the grease -- better than the coast.
