Hey everybody as you know my the Moms family is from the Gulf Coast region the oil from the spill has slowly begun to seep into their neck of the woods. But after a conversation with her brother last night the Mom is a bit....disturbed at what she heard.
I know we have all heard about the wonderful efforts of people across the country trying to do anything they can to help. Including one all of us in the blogosphere have heard plenty of the hair booms, many of us kitties have had our hair sent off in the hopes of helping out some Gulf Coasters.
Word in the local news which Mom has never seen in national news is that they are not allowing them to use the hair booms or any other means to help clean up the oil spill!!!
She found this about the booms
Her brother also told her the people of his community have suggested constructing artificial sand bars, using hay to soak up the oil and it has all been denied by either BP or the federal government.
So if they are not going to allow the people to try to help their community what are they going to do?
