Thanks for the post. I haven't been watching the news and had no idea how devastating this has become. I hope BP loses all of their federal contracts to drill for oil in this country. Their executives should face criminal charges.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

THIS WHOLE THING IS DISGUSTING AND HAS HAPPENED BECAUSE OF GREED, THE OIL COMPANIES ARE TOO CONCERNED WITH MAKING A PROFIT THAN PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT AND THEY ARE PAYING OUT ANY WAY, THIS WAY EVERY BODY LOSES AND THE INNOCENT WILD LIFE SUFFERS AS WELL

This makes me cry every time I read or see anything on the oil spill. There will be impacts to the environment for the rest of my life, I'm sure.

If anyone wants to do something to help, but don't know what to do, show your support by buying Dawn dish detergent. It's what they use to clean the birds. I don't know how clean it is, but it's got to be okay if they use it on birds which are generally sensitive to chemicals.

If you feel the need to donate cash, please send money directly to TriState Bird Rescue, which is located in Delaware. It's my understanding that any organizations asking for money for wildlife donations are not legit.

On a side note, although BP is paying for their services, room and board, I understand they are feeding the wildlife rescue workers crap - chips, cookies, white bread sandwiches and stuff like that. It's not like the workers can even really go anywhere to eat, as they are in a remote area in a fishing camp. I sent an e-mail to BP asking them to take better care of the wildlife workers, but my guess is no one will read it until sometime in 2011.

My BF sent a care package to his sister who is one of the TriState vets working the site. She expects to be there for about 6-8 weeks and hasn't had a decent meal. Knowing her, she is easily working 18-20 hours a day. She's one of the most dedicated people I know.

I am so disgusted by the time it is taking for them to do something about this. Every evening I watch the news and it's the same as the night before (actually it's worse). I just can't believe there was not a plan in place for this kind of catastrophe - totally unacceptable. It hurts my heart to think of all the people, animals and land that have and will be effected by this.

Sorry to hear that MRS.CARLY, I hope this doesn't impact any of your family's or friend's income.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
