    So? They're working on fixing it. And it needs to gush at the same rate it did on day one for 261 days before it ever gets to the same level as the Valdez oil spill. So yeah, not really flipping out over it. Valdez is fine now. So, too, will be the Gulf and the wetlands, eventually.

    What's done is done. Call me in 261 days...then I will start getting a little concerned.

    And you should not be celebrating it. But, for someone who took pleasure in posting about the deaths of our troops a while back, I kind of expected this.

    I've seen the pictures. I also saw the pictures of Valdez after the Exxon spill. I've also seen Valdez today, in person. Guess what? The picture gets better.

    Guess what...there was a fishing ban in Valdez, too. That's no longer the case these days.

    The Gulf spill isn't even as bad as the Valdez spill. It will get better.

    Where in the world do you get your info? This is probably way past the Valdez spill already... and you know it.

    So yeah, not really flipping out over it. Valdez is fine now.
    Uhhh, don't keep up on these disasters, ehh?

    Two decades after the worst oil spill in U.S. history, huge quantities of oil still coat Alaska's shores with a toxic glaze, experts say.

    More than 21,000 gallons of crude oil remain of the 11 million gallons of crude oil that bled from the stranded tanker Exxon Valdez on the night of March 23, 1989.

    The oil—which has been detected as far as 450 miles (724 kilometers) away from the spill site in Prince William Sound—continues to harm wildlife and the livelihoods of local people, according to conservation groups. (See an Alaska map.)

    Dennis Takahashi-Kelso, who was on the ground at the Exxon Valdez disaster as Alaska's commissioner of environmental conservation, remembers wading through knee-deep pools of bubbling, thick oil. The smell of the pure oil was intense and pungent, he said.

    When he returned to the same beaches years later, he found "surprisingly fresh" oil just below the sand.

    A simple google search would have shown you this.

    So, too, will be the Gulf and the wetlands, eventually.

    What's done is done. Call me in 261 days...then I will start getting a little concerned.
    Somehow I doubt it.
