Oil stay away

A solid article this morning in The New York Times about those underwater oil plumes; those of us on the Gulf find the wonk endlessly fascinating.

I'm counting on you, okay?

Meanwhile, my local volunteer machine appears to be in place.  The State and the County have put a procedure in place to alert and activate an army of volunteers if and when oil becomes a problem on our shore, which it very well might when the hurricanes come . Groups at the local level are registered and can go into action quickly. In my own community, we already have a task force in place to coordinate volunteers.  Unlike LA, AL, and MS,  we have time. I understand the State’s goal is to have people at every single foot of our shoreline. I also understand that any costs incurred by county, state or local orgs will be reimbursed by BP through the state. Hope they don’t run out of money.
