Today my thoughts are with the families and friends of the eleven workers killed on British Petroleum's Deepwater Horizon rig on April 20, 2010 and all the good people on the US Gulf Coast who continue to suffer from BP's mistakes, incompetence, and greed.

Environmental damage, health concerns, and income depletion of the population on America's Gulf Coast continue in spite of all efforts to hush things up and sink them to the bottom of the Gulf along with the oil. Fish are being caught with rotting fins, reports Amy Goodman today in her hour-long broadcast today at Democracy Now! as she asks guests to speak on where we are today.
Wildlife continues to die, people are hurting and the US government refuses to make a connection between the oil blowout and people's dire health consequences now appearing. The dispersant BP used to hide the massive amounts of oil (which they lied about from the start) is causing horrendous harm on top of the original damage. BP used the highest amount of dispersant ever used before - dispersants that are banned in Europe which means, of course, that the US gets saddled with them. Well, they had to sell them somewhere and American citizens are once again used (Pluto/Chiron = disenfranchisement; victimization) as the corporate world's guinea pigs.
So where we are today is we're scr*wed, as we well know, and Amy Goodman's interviews on the first anniversary of the BP-Gulf Oil Blowout are highly recommended - for we turn our backs on BP at our peril.
