I haven't been discussing the oil spill debacle in the Gulf of Mexico, mostly because I've been practicing my head in the sand routine since there's not a whole lot I can do about it and because it's so depressing. There are so many issues at play here that it's difficult, if not impossible, to summarize all of them in this post, but I wanted to check in and find out how you all are handling it.
In addition to the environmental devastation, trauma to fish, sea mammals and everything up and down the food chain, there's the economic disaster that will result. You can't put a price on the toll this will take.
So, in addition to how you feel about this tragedy, how are you dealing with it? Do you find comfort in knowing as much as possible or do you find it easier to ignore the problem? Or do you think it's just not that big of a deal, we'll get it cleaned up and life will go on as usual?
