Bad, Bad, Oil!

Fickle oil slick scatters its threats across Gulf

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. – In sensitive marshes on the Louisiana coast, oil thick as pancake batter suffocates grasses and traps pelicans. Blobs of tar the size of dimes or dinner plates dot the white sands of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. Little seems amiss in Mississippi except a shortage of tourists, but an oily sheen glides atop the sea west of Tampa.


Why blame BP when we can blame Mother Nature? We name hurricanes. Why not do the same with oil spills? This latest disaster should be named "Jezebel".
