The oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is shaping up to be an historic event. This preventable situation could threaten the very existence of New Orleans in ways storm Katrina didn't begin to approach.
I don't believe the tourist industry would survive is restaurants had to serve shrimp from China or if the fishermen had to abandon their boats. The economic ripple effect is beyond calculation.
Plus volumes could be written about the environmental effect.
Sad beyond expression.

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too. ~Voltaire
