    Don't worry, it's cool.

    If a handful of people continue to get wealthy off of this sort of thing, then it's good for all of humanity.

    Wow, great reporting from Al Jazeera, some of those stuff mentioned in the article is just sick. It's weird to think that 2 or 3 generations of shrimp have already lived and died since the BP disaster, which partially explains why mutations can be so widespread.

    Funny that they don't mention this on American (mainstream) airwaves.

    Yeah, you'd think the "liberal media" (sic, :rolleyes:) would be all over a story like this.

    Hopefully Obama doesn't have another knee-jerk reaction and ban shrimping for 6 months...

    Hopefully the GOP doesn't have another knee-jerk reaction by refusing to consider some options because it "feels bad".

    Isn't Al jazeera Obama's weekly newsletter?

    Class action lawsuit by the seafood industry against the chemical dispersant manufacturers? What lawyer is taking that case?

    Hey who cares, it is only a major livelihood for a major region of the country, what could possibly be wrong?

    There's no trickle-down effect for the shrimps and crabs.
