Everybody needs to read this dispatch from Mother Jones about BP and the beaches.
Welcome to your future, America. Poor people continuously raking the same patch of sand into bags for $10 an hour… not so much to clean the beach as to salvage the oil.
BP needs to be taken down. It might be time to promote this guy to Secretary of the Interior, so that he can implement his plan to nuke the leak shut. I’m beginning to come around… all the response actions thus far have been about preserving BP’s fucking investment, damn the environmental consequences. It’s an outrage.
