Case and Point

Just read this.

So in one of the rare positions where we could actually benefit from a "czar" running things, we don't get one? I get that we want to be really sure that dumping bacteria all over the coast won't lead to unintended consequences worse than what we're facing now, but it shouldn't take weeks to weight the pros and cons and make a decision.

And not to fly too far off on a tangent, if there's one thing that grinds my gears more than asides meant to push an agenda (FTA: "consisting of nutrients and three naturally occurring bacteria that eat oil"), it's people who think there's something on this earth that's not natural. You show me something made from nothing and I'll concede my point. Until then, we're just rearranging some atoms or pieces of atoms - naturally occurring pieces of atoms.

Can't argue with that.

And I hear you on those "asides meant to push an agenda."

Please see also: "New Orleans is a city below sea level" (51% above) and "there were no major oil spills in 2005" (8 million gallons qualifies as "major").
