I listened to the program and was glad to hear that finally somebody pays more attention to the people who suffer from the oil spill than to the poor birds.
I wish the discussion would also tackle the huge problem of the economic impact of the moratorium. I listened to Sen. Landrieu and she explained that 300,000 people depend on drilling. I hope we don't spill the baby with the wash water.

And last, but not least: there is a lot of rightful anger targeted to BP. I am missing the same kind of indignation targeting the people who were supposed to protect us. "Quid custodes ipsos custodes?" Who is going to guard the guardians?
