Now that BP totally ignored US orders about the cap again, it’s time for the UK prime minister to set Jr.jr straight. Here’s a Moonie Times headline on it DESPITE OIL SPILL ‘CATASTROPHE’ CAMERON STANDS UP FOR BP (why quotation marks under “catastrophy”? And why “oil spill”?)
and one in Metro NY (next to the Playboy story) AS GULF DISASTER UNFOLDS, OBAMA AND CAMERON TRADE NICETIES
In NYC, Metro piles on the Palin melee and reports further screwing of the passengers by the MTA following the old pattern: less service, more expensive..
USA Today gets cover of the day for reporting on oil-kill and war death toll
Even Washington Times pays a bit of attention to the oil-kill today, together with Blago’s “mud pies”
In Florida, they worry about Alex’s effect on the oil-kill
in NYC, NY Post milks the spy story day 3 with their favorite no longer red headed spy
and AM NY moans and bitches on the benefit of us. East Siders for the change of the fireworks on the other side of the Isle of Manhattan (I still trust my roof with a view)
Because BP’s oil-kill can’t be expected to do everything, today at the whaling summit Obama is expected to argue for killing them outright (lifting the ban on whaling)
Meanwhile, in NYC, from Daily News no less, Obama’s golfing gets noticed – at least by the GOP according to the paper. The rest of us would feel he should gold all the time, damn it!
LA Times serves us the cornucopia of disasters – the war (one of them) and the oil-kill causing mental stress
From Alabama, a history of BP lies – how they got 100 times bigger with the estimates
In Luisiana they keep their hopes in the relief drill
while in Mississipi a new substance comes ashore – hey, maybe we should give BP a Nobel prize for chemistry
Wall Street Journal writes how BP managed to “blunt US’s demand” – apparently 20 minutes photo op with Obama can only accomplish that much
From Missouri (not Chicago) a bit on Blago’s trial
Elsewhere in NYC, the talk of the tabloids is dirty subways
and Metro too
From CNN, comes this headline
State senators designated Sunday as a day for citizens to ask for God’s help dealing with the oil disaster.
“Thus far efforts made by mortals to try to solve the crisis have been to no avail,” state Sen. Robert Adley said in a statement released after last week’s unanimous vote for the day of prayer. “It is clearly time for a miracle for us.”
The resolution names Sunday as a statewide day of prayer in Louisiana and calls on people of all religions throughout the Gulf Coast “to pray for an end to this environmental emergency, sparing us all from the destruction of both culture and livelihood.”
Something here seems amiss… Oh, that pesky separation of state and church again.
Something here seems insane. Oh, yeah, that magical thinking again.
Something here seems familiar. Where did we hear – 6 paragraphs out of 32 speech on this?
A few great lines too
As a friend noted yesterday
“Does this mean they think that God wanted this to happen to begin with?”
10. I wanna help god
Where do I send my money?
But no one remembers the six paragraphs in teh speech. You know, the stuff that made Andrew Sullivan’s father cry
And while I approve of prayer as as much as I approve of yacht racing for stopping the oil, the state legislators were no more removed from reason than Obama in his speach to the nation.
So, if we’re going to mock, let’s give credit where credit is due.
