Liprap Has the Story Thus Far

At Humid City.

I missed this on Wednesday, but she also links to this informative piece on oil extraction infrastructure at NOLAdishu.

Moral of the story: we don't know a whole lot about oil exploration in the Gulf. I wish it didn't take epic ecological disaster to out us on the educational crash course.

And no, we're not going to stop talking about it. At least not while we can smell it outside.

No, we don't know a damn thing. And it takes something like this for everybody to do something about it. I'm so angry right now I could spit grenades...but not atop that oil river.

I'd be willing to accept napalm as a solution at this point.

So has actually asked you to stop talking about it or are you still assuming that people who are writing off the situation with "Shit happens." want you to stop talking about it as well?

No, I'm thinking of all the politicians (esp. one Sen. Mary Landrieu) who are telling people to "calm down" in various ways.

Ah, in that case, carry on...
