This just in;

(CNN) -- While cleanup crews and technical teams continue efforts to stop crude gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana lawmakers are proposing a different approach: prayer.

State senators designated Sunday as a day for citizens to ask for God's help dealing with the oil disaster.

"Thus far efforts made by mortals to try to solve the crisis have been to no avail," state Sen. Robert Adley said in a statement released after last week's unanimous vote for the day of prayer. "It is clearly time for a miracle for us."

The resolution names Sunday as a statewide day of prayer in Louisiana and calls on people of all religions throughout the Gulf Coast "to pray for an end to this environmental emergency, sparing us all from the destruction of both culture and livelihood."

Maybe we can sacrifice a few chickens and goats while we are at it? Oh wait, do pelicans and sea turtles count or was that accidental so the gods will not look favorably upon us?

These people are our leaders?

I for one don't give a rats ass about the poor little turtles and fishies that are dying. I am most pissed about all the wasted oil.
Then you are no better than the morally corrupt oil barons who have single handedly destroyed one of the most important marine ecosystems in the world. Get your check from BP and take the pill.

dhp123166, if I remember correctly you are in Georgia and are in much closer proximity to this disaster than myself but I share your outrage and disgust at what our fellow man has done and the lack of responsibility and the absence of a shred of moral fiber anywhere in our government or bp. As these events unfold in the Gulf, here in Nebraska the oil company TransCanada is pushing to build a pipeline from Canadian oil-sand fields across the great plains to Cushing, Oklahoma. This pipeline will run across the largest intact freshwater reserve in North America, the Ogallala Aquifer. Oh how short sighted we can be.
Oh if only the old testament covenant was still in effect.
