Restore the Gulf

I haven't spent any time on the blog bellyaching about the oil spill. I have done plenty of it at home and listened to an earful from Christian every day since the leak started but now it is time to take up a little blog space with a psa for all of you.

If you haven't done it yet, stop by and sign the Petition to Restore the Gulf. As with everything important for post-Katrina NOLA, the activist group, Women of the Storm, has made it as easy on all of us as possible. Just click on the blog title or the link right here and sign up. It takes a second:

Sign the Petition to Restore the Gulf

You can also be a constant reminder to others of what is going on down here and do it in style in one of these comfy, distressed t-shirts. I wore mine during recent trips to Georgia and Virginia and felt the love:

If t-shirts aren't your thing, maybe you can should just kick back with Abita's latest specialty brew, SOS. I know I am going to be washing down some LA seafood and sharing it with friends.

And then there's this great video that the Women of the Storm put together. If you haven't seen it yet, please watch it and share it with everyone you know.

I will save the debate about the moratorium and the politics for another day. For now, just do your part to spread the word.

thanks so much for writing this, cuz. so many people--including me-- feel totally helpless about it. It's so important to feel like there's something, even little things, we can do. hugs!

Well said. Is the beer just a LA thing? (Sometimes they're sneaky like that).
