Quirks: What a mess indeed. Those guys should be strung up by their you know whats. It'll take years to clean up the environmental effects.

Funny funnies. The gov't here is prepared to sue BP should it effect the fishing industry, such as it is.

Happy May 24!

LOL on privacy. BLEH to BP... not such a laughing matter.

CL: Yeah, what's happening to our society? Facebook's privacy policy amounts to nothing being private. And BP has come to stand for Big Problem. I tell ya the world's going to hell in a hand basket. (My mom used to say that.)

Gulf Sunrise, gulf unfortunately true. I don't believe I would want to operate BP service stations in these parts for about the next couple of decades. Business is sure to fall off.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
