After reading some of my earlier posts on the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe, Chong Go Sunim (of Wake Up and Laugh!) sent me a link to the clip below. It's a wonderful expression of "loving-anger."
The two "commentators," John Clarke and Bryan Dawe, capture the painful absurdity of BP's response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
I appreciate the humor in the above clip. But the situation remains serious and the American government's response to the catastrophe remains wholly inadequate. If you'd like to see what a genuine response to the oil spill might look like, "Fake President" Rachel Maddow offers her "oval office" viewpoint. I found this an impressive example of loving-anger and encourage you to watch it to the end.
Thank you for reading Ox Herding. May you find relief over the weekend!
P.S. If you just can't get enough on this topic, here's Jon Stewart on the history of "oil independence:"
