Really and truly tragic. Let’s hope today’s efforts to try a new approach at stopping this leak are successful.

I just read your previous post about Lost. OH I’m gonna miss that show. Love love love it. Great questions. I thought the ending was perfect–but then again I don’t like everything to be spelled out for me. 🙂

I am in New Orleans at the moment for a writing conference. I cannot believe that no one knows what to do to stop the oil leak. This is sooooo sad! The oil company should be hung out on a rack!
Rosslyn Elliott says
I agree. Sickening and sad.
