Timing

April 22, Earth day!

The story I heard most on the radio today?

Oil rig exploding offshore Louisiana on Tuesday, and the Federal response to the 11 missing crew, and the 'potential environmental hazard' posed by it.

The timing is curious, because its a good story to run when trying to push an environmental agenda through a news cycle.
The blast also has interesting timing, because I would not be at all surprised if the causation of this blast was man made, and not a accident of neglect.

Coincidence's this good are always suspicious in my book.

Wow it is a terrorist squirrel. Yes I agree the timing is extremely curious. I do believe that you are becoming a conspiracist, is that what it is called.

Uncanny. I thought the same thing when it happened, especially since there's such pressure right now to drill off shore. Hmmmm.

BTW, the squirrel looks like one of the crew on my property. If I don't have corn out for them, they come up to my back deck, climb up on the screen and glare into the house.

Wow. You had to zap somebody off the blog? Cool! I thought I was the only one mean enough to do that.

Sra, Perhaps. Only the Paranoid survive :D

Joel, only you would have squirrels that behave like cats!
And its actually like the 3rd zap in a few weeks... you're not the only curmudgeon ;)
