Harry Shearer's new project, The Big Uneasy, reminds us of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina as we approach the fifth anniversary of that devastating storm—and the disastrous human-caused atrocities that followed. And weren't there reports that armed Blackwater mercenaries were in there as well? I wonder if we'll ever get to the bottom of this.
With respect to the Gulf Oil spill, did you see this? Apparently, petroleum eating microbes have been eating up the oil plumes floating around out there in the Gulf. Hmmm. Where had I heard that before? I can only hope the reporting is accurate. Still, it's too early to gauge the consequences of this human-caused disaster.
Please vote in the poll "America is..." in the right margin. Thanks to those who've already cast theirs.
