    Portions of the GOM are ruined ----some of us have been trying to get that concept to the local people for months. This is difficult and painful(agonizing) to accept but the lives of the people on the GOM has been changed.
    Alarmists, conspiracy mongers-- it doesn't matter what they call us. The oil is there and the people are being lied to.

    Might suggest in order to get the word out put the word where it will be seen by a wider audience. try marketwatch.com and register and use their boards. I am one of the few that addresses this there and the BP Trolls gang up.

    We need more truth where it can be seen. The way to kill tyranny is through TRUTH.
