Don't Cry Over Spilled Oil...

Note to self: stop watching and reading about the Gulf Oil Spill.

Why? Because the more details I get, the more I get this knot in my stomach that feels like I want to throw up.

Basically, we ("we" meaning we humans who use oil) have pretty much killed a large chunk of the Gulf of Mexico. If we haven't, we've done just about everything short of causing mass extinctions. Oh, not permanently, but we've mucked it up for a very long time. And ourselves with it.

And there isn't a blasted thing I can do about it.

Excuse me, but I am going to going to go stick my head in the sand for the time being. Because otherwise, I'm going to start screaming and find it hard to stop.
