We are the consumers that demand extravagant amounts of oil for cheap. None of us are concious about what we use energy for and how much of it we use (It’s a hot summer day, let’s turn up the air conditioner, or, let’s take a ride down the shore). We all waste energy more so than any other nation. And now we are going to judge a company who attempted to provide this necessary commodity? Mistakes happen, BP should pay, but they should hike prices (Not that they can, the market prices commodities) and pass it on to the people who got them in the Gulf Coast to begin with- we the people of the global economy.

Tony, why don’t you supervise one of the spraying rounds and see what kind of food poisoning you can get?”

Just shut your big, lying, gaping hole.

I’m going with the three of you. Why are we even bothering with this editorial? Oh yes right, “American Idle” wrapped for the season so we need to express our ignorance in another forum. Thumbs up to all three of you! That’ll show ’em!

Gee, I always thought she was just a movie title. No matter, judging by her overinflated sense of importance and almost laughable sense of dramatic statement, it’s clear this whole Hollywood thing has gome straight to her head.

‘The world rightly takes pause at such a wound on the face of our planet.’

‘A moment of silence is due.’

I doubt any Hollywood hack could come up with worse boiler plate than what’s represented by those two lines.

Toxicants and toxins are still very prevalent today. What has really changed over the centuries has been improvements to sanitation and successful diagnosis and treatment of illness… Penicillin was one of the greatest scientific discoveries of all time.

The rest of us rely on our vehicles to get to work to support our families. Public transportation isn’t available or feasible for everyone. But that doesn’t mean that we are responsible for the actions of companies that supply the products we need to run our cars. Let’s try and keep the ball on the playing field.
