    Not likely. Port Aransas is 500 miles southwest of the spill. Prevailing winds are south and southwest, so the oil will be blown away from Port Aransas. That's not even counting the gulf stream that flows from west to east.

    No way possible for this oil to reach the Texas coast, much less Port Aransas.

    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.
    Adding to Jallman's post, it's pure politics until 2/3ds of a year have past. You will live. You will be fine. It's not the end of the world...hell Valdez wasn't the end of the world.

    And yes 21 years does make it ok.

    Yep, but the wind won't help the shores of Louisiana and Mississippi. Maybe even Alabama and Florida.

    I've fished in the Venice area many times along with most of the Gulf of Mexico and parts of the Pacific. The Gulf waters off Venice are the best fishing areas I've ever seen. Inshore fishing was fantastic too. Caught 200 lb. tuna offshore and 30+ lb. reds at the mouth of the Miss. River.

    Let's hope it stays that way.

    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.

    Yet another person with no working understanding of this subject chiming in. I live in Lafayette La. I party in the areas affected, that being said these things happen, it sucks, but guess what it isn't the apocolypse you on the left want it to be. Here's a clue, oil seeps out of vents, fissures, and faults all the time and used to be considered a junk substance until it's combustive and elastic values were discovered in fuel an manufacturing needs. My coast, the business of my coast. Oil producers are safe, but no matter what bad things happen, besides you wanting to pull an "Iron Eyes Cody" and cry over something you can't control and didn't do over some mentally created slight against Gaia what else do you plan on doing?

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    No, you're merely calculating your political gain from this accident, which is nil.
