Above is the oil slick caused by the recent offshore drilling disaster off the coast of Louisiana. This is a NASA MODIS image that weather.com used in their latest article:
As the article will inform you the oil slick, now larger than Rhode Island, will inevitably go ashore but maybe not until the end of the week or weekend. Because if it didn't make landfall and we didn't have to physically see first-hand the devastation our stupidity brings then what...? We could act like it didn't happen? Just sweep it under the rug, and be done with it?
It's been a full week of stupid, selfish behavior and it's only Tuesday. Elie Wiesel once said, "Indifference to me, is the epitome of evil." Unfortunately in this day and age I think that is turning out to be entirely too true. More than obesity or cancer I think the greatest disease in this country is laziness. ...but I can't let the environmental rant go on. I have to get dinner on the table, a starving fiancee is on her way.
Actions mean consequences, people, if you want to talk about inevitable! Grrrrrr....
Oh, and the longer Elie Wiesel quotation goes like this:
"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, but indifference between life and death."
