like sand in the hourglass...

WOW, I can't believe it's been almost a MONTH since the BP oil explosion and subsequent leak in the Gulf... And it's still going strong. According to this morning's NYT BP engineers finally achieved some success at containment on Sunday when they used a mile-long pipe to capture some of the oil and divert it to a drill ship on the surface of the well head. Some success? Hmmm... Now for the record, I'm all for keeping hope alive and whatnot. Howsomeva, not quite so sure that's going to be much of a comfort when folks on South Beach are looking at smelly brown water with dead fish floating on the surface. I'm just saying.

  1. as someone who is still having seafood cravings after my miami trip, i would also suggest folks get it in while you can....

  2. It's terrible and driving up the cost of my seafood.
