It's a Whole 'Nother Country

I've lived in Texas or Louisiana half my life, with a family heavily involved in the oil industry. Now, I am to my family as Austin is to Texas: a lonely dot of liberalism in a sea of red conservatives. While I don't think anyone out there deliberately caused the spill - there was just too much at stake - it's turning into a surreal, dark comedy. So I love this post by Terry Border entitled "Black Gold, Texas Tea":

It's a clever little piece of art and political commentary.

Trying to look on the bright side, I think the graft from this disaster might just be enough to finish rebuilding New Orleans.
