Day 73. Why?

Today is the 73rd day of the Gulf Oil Spill, now the largest oil spill on record in the Gulf of Mexico.

Why is oil still leaking?

We can create technology to extract this oil.

We can create technology to explore space.

We can create technology to turn computers from room-filling behemoths to palm-sized mutli-tools.

We can create technology that saves lives, prevents diseases, and extends life beyond our expectations.

And we can’t plug this leak? Really? Why?

    Amen sister. What the f*ck! Its so infuriating. Those people need to get their sh*t together! I hope there won’t be any oil drilling in/off the coast of Alaska any time soon! This a great reminder to all those who think these type of oil disasters won’t ever happen, and that oil drilling is ’safe’! I can only imagine how much worse it would be and how much more difficult to deal with in those icy waters up in your neck of the woods! Or how devastating it would be in some pristine and fragile bit of Arctic wilderness up there! I hope somebody learns some lessons from all of this. Sigh.

    I kind of think we shouldn’t do anything without first knowing how we can un-do it.
