The oil continues to gush into the Gulf of Mexico. People are picking up oil off the beaches. People with boats are trying to pick up oil in the water. BP is capturing some of the oil. BUT, the federal government still has not taken the initiative to stop the oil before it gets on shore. Doesn’t the EPA have jurisdiction over this? Why aren’t they in control and in command? If this course of action does not take a dramatic change in course, the entire Gulf coast may be damaged beyond repair for the lifetime of anyone living now. This is a Dunkirk moment. Unfortunately, there is no Winston Churchill to direct the effort to save the day. This situation needs a hero!
