Clean, white beaches fringe Biloxi and Gulfport – for now. Things should be fine for Memorial Day weekend. I live on the beach and detect NO crude oil odor. Looking at the maps of the oil spill, there is no reason to expect any oil stench soon. The hotels, restaurants and charter fisherman need tourist dollars. Come on down to the Coast, enjoy the seafood, sand, water, and casinos. New Orleans is only an hour and 20 minutes away. Who knows how things will be by the Fourth of July holiday.
Demand action to stop the BP oil leak. It appears the company doesn’t have the resources to quickly stop the gusher. It also appears that the federal government has dropped the ball on this and if nothing else, is too big to get the job done. If investigative committees are the best thing the feds can come up with in dealing with this crisis, we’re all in big trouble.©2010 Jane Feehan All rights reserved
