JA - that is so sad to see happening athough it was and continues to be inevitable for our beaches here and beyond.  Your photo here has much more of a direct impact on me than any CNN report can.  We'll be dealing with this for awhile and not have our wildlife fully recover for years.

So sad.  It's going to be tough for the region and by extension the country.  I haven't seen that many pictures of the impact yet.

Weird - I just went down to the tourist area of Pensacola Beach and there is NO oil anywhere to be seen. Lots of news trucks, but I didn't see any of the globs of nastiness that are all over my beach - about three miles east...

I did, however, find a way to deal with the emotional stress of it all ... Bushwackers and oysters.

Hi Jennifer,

  The family just returned from a week in Destin. Sure hope things get fixed ASAP, but something tells me we are in this for the long haul.

Good afternoon Jennifer,

Oh GOD!!! So sad... This issue has been making me sick.  A million "good deeds" recycling and the like seem like they are down the drain with this mess. A friend of mine has family in Pensacola - he told me today that "it" arrived today...

That is horrible.

Surely someone, somehow, somewhere, can come up with the technology to stop the leak and clean up the damage .... Please!!!!

I live here and I will always drive a gas powered car I suppose so therefore I want be a hypocrite and blame BP. The alternative is to walk or come up with a solution but stop the whining unless you have a solution and if you do go to work and fix it or put your money into what you believe but enough of the greater than thou syndrome.

From the President to the Green Commy people whine and holler about how this is a disaster and should be stopped as they get into their Jumbo oil smoking jets and head home. What hypocricy.

Charles - I am getting tired of all the blaming and pontificating. Can we move beyond that already? It's certainly not productive and I'd love to see the energy directed toward something that IS productive.

As a front row spectator, this shall be interesting to watch unfold... tragic, but morbidly fascinating.

Jennifer - Wonder what affect this oil spill will have on property values in the ares it touches physically and then the untouched areas close by?

It is a horrible mess and I hope it comes to an end for everyone sooner rather then later.

Heart-breaking. At some point we are expecting the same on the east coast as the currents and Florida hurricane season pushes the oil along. What a national disaster.

That is so sad. I see that others have observed what I immediately thought - looks like dog poop! I guess it is kind of like it but it's BP doing the defecating all over our land.

Last night I took an evening walk on the beach and it was absolutely gorgeous. No oil poops to be seen anywhere and the water was clear as can be. It was so pretty I felt like crying. This morning I went back and saw lots of little oil poops, but it was still beautiful (the beach, not the blobs).

Life will go on, I guess, and we'll adjust. If our beaches will be tainted with oil for awhile, I guess we'll wear shoes. Someone will probably invent a post-ocean-dip cleanser that safely washes off the oil. We'll learn to overlook the ugliness and see the beauty that is left. We'll find another source for oysters or learn to live without them.

Sigh... I love oysters.
