Eric, I think 7 & 9 year old boys are about as resilient as they come. But there are snakes and insects of all kinds. I actually got bit by a scorpion while there. Felt like a wasp bite.

No, I haven't. Just a little swimming. But it looks super fun.

Thanks for your comment, Wolfy. Yes, I think Bush would've been forced to do something. But I really don't want to delve in to party politics. My purpose was to tell a story of my experience and the hypocrisies that I think a lot of us carry around. As I mentioned in the post, I think we are/will see changes in offshore drilling practices and regulations; but it certainly doesn't take our need for oil off the table. I do have hope for the future, don't think otherwise, but I also think there is a great deal of polarization and differing views on alternative energy, as well as general apathy. After the spill is stopped I don't want it to be business as usual again.

Thanks Josh! Technology is the solution. The way humans decide to use it is the potential threat. But I agree, every generation has its fears. In many ways we are more responsible than ever. Cities used to dump raw sewage right in to the ocean and rivers. Landfills had no restrictions. But this oil issue is a mess, and I hope we'll find some good alternatives. People have to care enough though.

Wow! That is amazing, especially since they only have hind molars. Either she got a hold of his whole leg, or the front plate was sharp enough to make an incision?

I love the smell of malleable budgets in the morning!
