    Eff the turtles, they were dead anyway.
    But don't they deserve a decent burial?

    Yeah... ask any fisherman what a fish does when it's in danger. It dives. Same for any sea life, they go deep fast.

    No doubt though that some turtles are going to get caught up, perhaps they come up for a breath and get oil instead, diminishing their capacity to dive at all. Perhaps the ones caught up are already dead. Sea turtles dive for hours at a time.

    You'd think even a turtle wouldn't come up for air in a dark part of the water; they'd seek out where light is.

    Creole Turtle Soup Recipe

    Roux:
    1 Cup Unsalted Butter
    1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour

    4 Tbsp Usalted Butter
    1 lb Turtle Meat Cut into 1/2 inch cubes
    1 1/2 Cup Onion, Finely Diced
    1 Cup Celery, Finely Diced
    1/4 Cup Green Onion, Finely Sliced
    2 tsp Garlic, Minced
    2 Fresh Bay Leaves
    1 1/2 Cup Fresh Tomato, Diced
    1 Qt Beef Stock
    1 Pinch Cayenne
    1 Pinch Ground Allspice
    2 Tbsp Fresh Thyme Leaves
    1 Tbsp Fresh Marjoram, Chopped
    Salt and Black Pepper to taste
    1/4 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
    4 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
    3 Tbsp Sherry
    3 Hard Boiled Eggs, Whites diced, Yolks Riced
    Lemon Slices
    5 tsp Italian Pasley, Finely Chopped

    Melt the 1 Cup of Butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan, whisk in the flour, cook to make a peanut butter colored Roux. Set aside. For more on making a Roux, click here.
    In a large saucepan or dutch oven, melt the 4 Tbsp of Unalted Butter over medium-high heat, add the diced Turtle Meat and saute until nicely browned.
    Lower the heat to medium, add both types of onions, the celery, and garlic. Season with salt and black pepper. Saute until the vegetables are tender.
    Add the tomatoes, season with a little salt so they will break down, cook for 10 minutes.
    Add the Beef Stock, Worcestershire, Cayenne, Allspice, and Bay Leaves. Bring to a boil, then down to a simmer. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally and skimming off any impurities that may rise to the surface.
    Whisk in the Roux, simmer until thickened and smooth. Add the Thyme, and Marjoram, simmer for 15-20 minutes more.
    Add the Lemon Juice, 3 tsp of the Parsley, and the riced Egg Yolk, heat through.
    Serve garnished with Lemon Slices, Diced Egg Whites, and Parsley. Add the Sherry at the table, about 1-2 tsp per bowl.

    Serves 4-6

    Wait, I thought the left didn't believe in Fox News! So why now? Could it be because a boat captain is talking about poor sea turtles? Where's the other side of the story?

    The other side?

    *waves hands*
    you didn't see anything
    *waves hands again*
    nothing happened

    Or should I be mocking "please, may I have your attention?"
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I think the Coast Guard needs to check this captain out.

    Nice recipe, but I'd rather be beaten with a stick than clean a turtle. But maybe sea turtles are easier to clean than snappers.

    Is it just me, or is there a bit of a disparity between what BP will be expected to pay in reparations for this ($20 billion for the fund, just for starters) and the $470m Union Carbide paid to settle the Bhopal disaster in which 20,000 Indians died?
