That was an interesting read, and this might sound very insensitive, but the disastrous environmental impact of near biblical proportions trumps(by a million fold) the story of the 11 oil workers who lost their lives pumping oil out in the middle of the ocean. I feel bad for their families, I do, but not nearly as bad as I do for the animals and habitats and all the people who's lives have been destroyed in the coast region since the rig exploded. Those 11 men made a choice to work in a dangerous field of work, they were doing their jobs. The pelicans did not choose to be covered in oil and die a slow miserable death. So what's more important? "The lives of eleven good men or a bunch of damned pelicans?" I'm saying the damned pelicans every day of the week and twice on Sunday. And more than that, I'm saying our delicate and precious environment is more important...way, way more important. Remember the men, tell their story, but don't scoff at, and dismiss the the bigger picture as not being the bigger picture.
Just my 2 pennies.
