Baby Dies in Oil Spill (VIDEO)

The Gulf Oil Spill will change our world forever. BP, Government apathy, underfunded code enforcement, and a burgeoning oil-addicted population are to blame. I've gone from uncharacteristic panic to being afraid of my own empathy.

When President Obama warned British Petroleum not to be "nickel and diming" businesses hurt by the oil leak, no figure came to mind that could ever compensate for the genocide. We have lost so much. With all optimism, I am afraid we have not begun to pay.
