More pics from Boston.com, a site that has had some amazing pics of global events as of late. If you need a little comic relief, this should do. Otherwise, here’s one last bit of me on a soapbox before the weekend. For the Dennis Millers and Rush Limbaughs of the world who marginalize the BP spill with a patronizing Yeah, we feel bad for the birds but we need oil to run things: 11 people died over more than a need for oil, likely, due to company negligence if reports are to believed. Even if you can sleep at night knowing a local economy is in ruins to go along with a lot of dead wildlife, there’s no way to spin a company with a significant number of safety violations putting people it employed at risk. Even the ones helping with the clean-up. The media access that was supposed to be forthcoming? Not a chance, apparently. And if you think it’s only Obama’s fault, scan this at your leisha’. Big Oil’s been in bed with all of ‘em for a long time.
