    i agree with you on that one. also i thought that 58,000 gallons seemed kind of a small load for an oil tanker, this makes sense now.

    If we keep this up, there will be nothing left for us and our future generations. This planet will be a sh*t hole( sorry for my french ) if we dont get our act together. I feel sorry for my kids:-[

    lol,you ever look at the returns line at the wal-mart service desk?or their recalls board back by the lay away?i buy things like toilet paper and towels there but no food or things that could burn a house down like tv's or toasters.well ok my toaster is from china but i don't leave it plugged in lol.i seriously doubt their very happy they lost all that fuel over in our bay,i figure their just negligent as well as maybe the 3 u.s. employees they hired to run the boat,but of course once again i say we'll see after the investigation which they seem to be taking seriously.

    I understand. Trust me. I live here.

    Let's just see how this thing plays out. I think there were mistakes across the board here. Unfortunately knowing what they are will not clean up the beaches here, but maybe it will prevent another one from happening.

    User CP (top nav), then 'options' on the left side, then it's a 'mood' pull down near the bottom of the options page.
