The federal government continues to be the second disaster in the Gulf. The clean-up response has been completely inadequate and now we are seeing the results of the long drawn out delay. Latest reports have not determined whether the tar balls showing up in Texas have made their way with the current or from a ship that has carried them our way. Nonetheless, its been more than 80 days and we are going to eventually see more of this if the federal government doesnt cut through the red tape and get this under control. This is an emergency situation and its long past time for Washington to realize it.
