    RIP Offshore Drilling. A really bad idea to begin with. It does nothing for us.
    I agree. Offshore drilling is overrated. I think we should look inside our borders for exploitable reserves. We can start in San Francisco, right underneath Nancy Pelosi's office...

    The new governor of virginia was bragging about how he pushed though offshore drilling off the virginia coast. Goodbye chesapeake bay.

    The effects of this massive spill won't be measured for years, but the typical oil greed apologists are already at work. The damages to the environment will be felt for decades and this crisis will likely drive many small businesses out of existence. Yet here we have a bunch self appointed "experts" telling us, "it's no big deal" and "oh well, accidents happen." Shame on you.

    Gulf oil spill could reach shore Thursday night

    CAIN BURDEAU

    Associated Press Writer= NEW ORLEANS (AP) The edge of a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was expected to reach the Mississippi River delta by Thursday night and a new technique to break up the oil a mile underwater could be tried, officials said.

    As of this morning, part of the slick was about 3 miles from the Louisiana shore, said National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration spokesman Charles Henry said. It's too late to stop some of the spill from reaching the coast, but BP PLC said it might attempt to break up some of the oil spewing from a blown-out a mile under water.

    The company also has asked the Department of Defense if it can help with better underwater equipment than is available commercially, said BP PLC chief operating officer Doug Suttles.

    The gulf already has hundreds of miles of "dead zones" where nothing can live. That along with flesh eating bacteria, that can do a person in. And with all the poison being dumped into the gulf daily via the Mississippi river, what does a little organic oil hurt? I will not let that water touch my skin, or get in my eyes. It is a very polluted in many areas. .

    21 years without a major accident is pretty damn good.
    There ya go with the political angle again. This has nothing to do with politics if you live along the gulf coast.

    There has not been a major incident for 21 years. That makes it ok? You obviously don't live along the third coast. We are talking salt marshes here. Salt marshes that are in trouble already. These marshes are nurseries for for fish and winter grounds for waterfowl and shorebirds. Do you have any understanding of the natural world and how fragile a salt marsh ecosystem is? Have you ever fished or hunted?

    Once again this is not a political issue. If you eat gulf shrimp or mississippi oysters you should be concerned.

    You are right, its been 21 years but all it takes is one major oil spill to ruin an entire salt marsh not to mention the beaches along the coast.

    I am a member of the Costal Conversation Association here in Texas. There are people from all sides of the political spectrum who are CCA members. Mark my words this leak is going to kill the coast of Louisiana.

    I guess I won't be deep-sea fishing off of Port Aransas this year.

    Port Aransas is no where near this spill.
