This Gulf thing. Been a while since we (as in you and me) have chatted about it. It’s still there, even though it’s reported that progress is being made in a successful fashion to cap the bloody thing. And I’m still full of #$)*$&#$ about it.
Not much is happening here in my part the west coast of the F-L-A in terms of physically helping the cause. But I’m staying currently educated and trying to plug in to as many places and sources as possible. As the cliché goes, I’m ready, willing and able.
One of my besties, she of I Read Banned Books, enlightened me to this cause: Restore the Gulf. It’s easy to participate in this one: click on the link, have a little look around and just plunk down your John or Joan Hancock on a petition that emphatically says “I demand that a plan to restore American’s Gulf be fully funded and implemented for me and future generations.”
Notable Louisiana residents (including my political boyfriend James Carville, Emeril Lagasse, the Manning brothers and Sandra Bullock) have come together in a short video to plug the cause. Look! Here it is:
So while you’re taking a hit off your morning coffee or energy drink or unsweetened raspberry iced tea fron Dunkin’ Donuts (not that I’d know anything about that last option) take a gander at the video. And sign the petition. For so many reasons.
Not the least of which is that it’s the right thing to do.
