The Good News and the Bad News

Well, I'm about disgusted with Leo. Leo Leo Leo, why must you do the same movies over and over again (I saw Shutter Island after seeing Inception. How could I help myself?)? But they released some meant-to-be definitive numbers for the oil leak in the bottom of the gulf. The good news is that this nearly hundred day total of nearly five million barrels is but a small fraction of the daily consumption of the US, not to mention that of the world. And just where do we think all that oil is going if not into the environment?

So, the good news is that the disaster really doesn't matter. It doesn't add up to much. The bad news is that this will then become an excuse to continue doing nothing about the real problem.
