"I love acting. It is so much more real than life." Oscar Wilde

Expressing frustration with the media scrutiny over his company's massive oil spill, former BP CEO Tony Hayward said that he might have been better served by having a degree in acting rather than by his degree in geology.

Wha choo talkin' `bout?

The spill is gone.
Back to Drill Baby Drill!

Hundred of barrels a day are being wrung out of the shrimp before processing. Yum. Goes down easy and like Loosener's it cleans/lubes the whole system, right on down the line.

Tony Hayward would have made a better Richard III than Hamlet.

We know as late as August that BP was still spraying Corexit subsurface at the wellhead. Many people in the Gulf are very ill, some have been hospitalized with chemical pnuemonia, a condition that looks like MRSA but is caused by exposure to Dispersed oil in the water {meaning corexit and oil} and some have kidney and liver damage. Oysters failed to spawn this season, wich is no surprise because Corexit and PAHs from Crude are Endocrine Disrupters. And Dispersed oil has been found in Gulf Shrimp Shit veins reading 193 PPM for PAHs {poly aromatic hydrocarbons} Usual allowances for PAH contamination in Shellfood on other coasts range in the 34 to 43 PPB--big difference, though the FDA said 500 PPM is allowable {what a big difference that is between PPM and PPB}. I wouldn't touch Gulf Seafood with a ten foot pole and a radiation suit and I sure as hell wouldn't swim in the Gulf either.

Oops Shellfish. And I didn't mean to suggest that the MRSA like condition is the Chemical Pnuemonia, those are separate condition. Poor sentence structure on my part. Oops.

Rehctaw: Business as usual! Jeepers, what a swell country we live in. ;o)

O'Hollern: Perhaps that's true, but I thought that Hamlet is about as obscure a reference as I could get away with.

Seeing Eye Chick: The good part about all of this is that if the mainstream media stops talking about it, then it's not really happening! ;o)
