"Louisiana Isn't The Only Place That Has Shrimp" -- BP rep Randy Prescott

I was so unspeakably pissed off that I sent him an email. I don't fucking care if he never sees it. If you feel like calling his office, the number is (713) 323-4093. Email is

Dear Mr. Prescott,

If you think what BP has done is only about the shrimp, then you have a shrimp-sized conscience. Which, apparently, is the case with your balls.

Then again, imagining the profound suffering your corporation has caused might be something you don't want to delve too deeply in. And I don't blame you for not wanting to look at that. It's a hideous abyss. A majority of us wouldn't have the balls.

But how about this: instead of making snarky remarks, why not at least try to begin to make an attempt to assume a modicum of accountability? Who knows -- by doing so you might actually get on track to do some good in this world. And, as an added result, grow some balls.

I love this. Here is my email:

Dear Mr. Prescott,

"Louisiana isn't the only place that has shrimp".  It's not hard for me to imagine your company has that stance. BP is ignorant, greedy, manipulative and deceitful. If your intellectual capacity is of that where you actually believe you're correct then I suggest you go home, look your children, wife-- whomever your family is-- in the eyes and apologize to them; that is if you see yourself as 'accountable' to them.  Apologize for ruining their earth and their future.

 Our world will never be the same, but you know that. This is more than ruining Louisiana's shrimp. This is more than surface oil (we all know about deep sea as well). It's more than the aquadic and fowl life you've murdered. You've destroyed the ecosystem. Just wait for the acid rain, dead crops and hurricanes when your destruction speards farther than up the Mississippi River. I'm anticipating your excuses for those to be "we don't control the weather". No, you just control the spin factor.       

What you have done in the Gulf is an absolute travesty, but of course you already know that. How do you sleep at night? Money can't fix what you've done, it can't buy happiness and it will not cover your ignorance forever.

Did you also send the note to a Gaza prison camp?

I sure hope so.
