The spill in the Gulf is being set up as a rally cry of the Green Revolution. Which is admirable. But why don't they do something that really matters, like microvitamins and minerals to third world children (and adults!). There are many other concerns that stretch beyond oil, energy, and global warming. Granted an oil mess is troublesome but it is not like the whole world will be covered in oil from this one well. The world may be small but is certainly bigger than the spill size sized to our 22 inch to 60 inch hdtvs. Ah images, the points of mass communication. The personal spirit of a blog can at least provide some mind real estate and touch the emotions. It takes a ton of education to change an ounce of perception in some cases. Oil, gambling, and what's funny among the many.
