On a Particular Silence

I have written maybe five words about the oil spill. Not because I love lightly regulated offshore drilling leading to the destruction of an entire ecosystem, but because I just can't do it. I can write about human rights abuses and injustices and crap Supreme Court decisions like the inversion of Miranda because they are, at least in theory, reversible.

I'm not sure the apocalypse in the Gulf is. And I can't deal with that much sadness.

Rachel's on it; go there and weep.

you said it. i've never felt this depressed in my life, ever. it's gut renching to read about and i find myself obsessively checking updates. no words are fit to describe it, and no punishment is too severe for the lunatics that caused it and let it happen.
