It's not that I got nothing, but I'm just being lazy today.

This video is making the internet rounds. It's ok, but I can't help thinking it could be better. That being said, for the life of me I do not understand why BP or the U.S. Government don't take all assistance, no matter how far fetched some of the ideas sound.

I saw an interview with Mary Chapin Carpenter recently who commented on exactly what I've been thinking for about the last 2-3 years. She said, "If you pay too much attention to the news, your heart would be broken in a thousand pieces every day. You couldn't function."

It really is how I feel about the oil spill. The natural resources, the livelihood of the residents, the images and video of wildlife and animals - it just breaks my heart. Clearly the folks at BP seemingly have no heart. It's nice the CEO will have a job until it is resolved, then they'll dump his ass. Because, really - who the fuck are they gonna find to take this job if they canned him right now?

Anyway, here is the video that is supposed to be funnier than it is.

You didn't think that was very funny? Man, I was ROLLING!

Well, it's better than crying.

I avoid all television news and links to pictures. I read headlines but that's about it. If I didn't protect myself from the news about the oil spill I would retreat into a deep depression.

Years ago I stopped my subscriptions to news magazines because I cannot handle the weight of the world any more, but I work hard to improve my little corner of it.

Maybe it is because I am in Iowa that I am so out of it but that was really funny.
