    I do believe the Army Corps of Engineers is working with BP.

    Probably a hell of a lot more than Costner.

    Did you see the word "probably" in my post? Can you guess what that might mean?

    Valdez happened when I was 14 when I lived in NC. I was fishing there when I was 29. It will get better.

    Edit: It's a thriving tourist attracting and business again. Don't believe? Call one of these guys.
    Was Valdez hit hard by the spill? The spill occurred in the Prince William Sound and the EVOSTC shows the oil flowing away from the city

    Well it pretty much ruined the economy there for about 10 years. And the people of Valdez were in a big suit with Exxon for a long time, though I think that's been settled now.

    I find it so funny that people minimize the effect of Valdez just to try to magnify the effect of the Gulf spill. It was TEH HORRORZ when it happened back in '89 but now everyone is saying "oh it wasn't that bad".

    Just goes to prove my point that this, too, will pass.

    You know what we used to call a marsh or wetland?

    A SWAMP. A big stinking useless swamp.


    You know what we used to do with Swamps?

    DRAIN THEM, build DIKES, and then we built NEW ORLEANS.

    Yeah well that didn't work out too good either.

    I'm sorry I just can't get too worked up about this. I've spent some time fracking around in swamps... they're intresting I guess, but they'll survive and regrow and who really cares...

    Depends on the swamp. There are some spectacular swamps. Some great picturesque areas. Now I will never go to them since I fear snakes in a totally unrational manner, but they do look good in pictures.
