Mississippi Governor 'Shocked' By Coast Guard's Gulf Spill Coordination

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour tells NPR's All Things Considered today that he was "shocked" to discover three weeks ago that the Coast Guard had no way to effectively coordinate hundreds of vessels deployed to fight the Gulf oil spill....No one has more to lose on this well than BP."


Oil reaches Biloxi Beaches

I'm disgusted that our area is just on the brink of recovery from Katrina, and with 70 days to prepare, pretty much nothing has been done to prevent this intrusion of oil on our beloved coastline,'

Some 70,000 turtle eggs to be whisked far from oil

An effort to save thousands of sea turtle hatchlings from dying in the oily Gulf of Mexico will begin in the coming weeks in a desperate attempt to keep an entire generation of threatened species from vanishing.

Disturbing News

I love that typical Morning Joe incoherence: "Nobody's talking about it" except "Every Republican I talk to"


MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said House Minority Leader John Boehner "is not a hard worker" and cuts out of the Capitol early for bar-hopping evenings in Washington...."Nobody's talking about it," Scarborough continued. "Every Republican I talk to says John Boehner, by 5 or 6 o'clock at night, you can see him at bars. He is not a hard worker."


Wow, Joe slamming Boehner, his fellow Republican. And accusing him of going to bars after work? Isn't that what everyone does in DC? What is going on here? There must be more to this story.



"Do you know what's going on down in Washington today? The Senate began the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Elena Kagan. And tomorrow, my favorite part of the whole procedure, the talent competition. And, I want to tell you something — wait until you hear this woman sing 'I Dreamed a Dream.'" –David Letterman

Those Sorry Republicans
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Just what’s the Republican mission?
To oppose each Obama position.
He gets tough on BP—
Gets an escrow, then see
Their response to the BP contrition:

Reps Joe Barton and Bachman and Price
By default claimed Obama ain’t nice.
He’s been mean to BP.
It a shakedown, you see.
Cuz unthinking objection’s their vice.

But fighting this fund makes no sense.
To do so’s an error immense.
The people approve.
It’s a positive move,
And opposing it makes them look dense.

Even Boehner and co seem to know
That defending BP’s a no-go.
Strikes a terrible tone,
So they rushed to disown
The pro-BP speech made by Joe.

But a hundred-plus others expressed
The same viewpoint in print. Not addressed!
It seems Boehner and co
Are pretending as though
The have solved their BP PR test.

It is clear where Republicans stand.
They are naught but a pro-corp’rate brand.
They put citizens last
And are only aghast
When a Dem gives the people a hand.

This is the view from the room I am renting in San Jose. I'm in a second story house right above a beauty salon the landlord runs. I share the second floor with 3 renters, one is a nail salon. I know, ladies, I died and went to heaven. I had my hair cut short yesterday and my good friend Hazel said, "You look like Victoria Beckham." I love Costa Ricans, they only lie to compliment you.
