The Civic Theatre of Allentown is hosting a comedy benefit fundraiser on Saturday, July 3rd. Doors open at 8:15 pm (show starts at 9:00 pm) and half of the evening’s proceeds go toward clean up in the Gulf of Mexico. If you want to do something to help and haven’t figured out how, here is an opportunity.
It is heart breaking to see how bad this is and that now Florida is being affected! This video gives some perspective on the damage being done. Please take 4 minutes and watch this video. It is certainly illuminating!
Check out this jackalope from British Petroleum’s asinine statement regarding his company’s perpetration of an ecological disaster of biblical proportion.
British Petroleum (BP) rep Randy Prescott made a comment to those worried restaurateurs facing rising prices for shrimp and oysters, “Louisiana isn’t the only place that has shrimp!” His office phone number is (713) 323-4093; his email is email@example.com. Give Randy a call or send an email and give this insensitive clod a piece of your mind. Snopes.com is confirming this is a true statement. Getting seafood from further away will cost restaurants more money AND the fact that seafood is available from places other than Louisiana does not help all those out of work fishermen. Now does it Randy!
No matter in what “context” this remark was made, it is just more evidence that British Petroleum is not putting this disaster in perspective. If it was an American company that did this in the North Sea and oil was all over England, Scotland and Wales, we would be the great capitalist Satan etc…
