The problem with the Titanic cartoon is after the Titanic sunk, all ships had to have enough lifeboats for their passengers.
The problem is not necessarily off-shore drilling. The problem is that we have had oil spills before and big oil companies have still not developed a “lifeboat” procedure for capping or stopping a leak.
This leak has proved devastating to the fishermen and other small businesses in the Gulf region.
On another note, the next time the cartoon artist orders Gulf shrimp with oil and vinegar ... he could pass on the oil!
