It happens we in the U.S. (south-Texas, gulf coast, specifically) are currently entertaining a hurricane, goes by the name of, uh, let me look...Dolly (apparently a storm with a heavy breast).
As I mull and ponder Dolly's portent , it occurs to me how one quickly develops an affinity for a nice little sustained gulf breeze...it occurs to me as well that recently expressed (U.S.) sentiment toward expanded off-shore drilling (oil specie) is malicious, vile, and an absolute affront to nature.
I hereby call upon congress to eschew the fight against steroids in baseball and turn their laser-light of logic and reason instead to forestalling any effort to extract oil from gulf waters.
We simply cannot presume to risk fouling a perfectly decent and unassuming ocean storm with the tools of our greed and ignorance!!
WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO DO THIS - HURRICANES ARE HUMAN, TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
