Should BP Officials Be Pelted With Tar Balls?

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Tests are still being run to find out if tar balls found in Central Florida are from the Deep Water Horizon spill. They started washing ashore in Brevard County on Tuesday and a few tar balls were reported Wednesday in Ormond Beach.

The Coast Guard is now helping Brevard County clean it up. They consider the tar balls part of an oil spill that they are tasked with investigating. Whether it`s related to the Gulf disaster or not, the Coast Guard was out making sure the beaches are clean for the time being." Read More

I was born in San Francisco, and I consider the City by the Bay the most location anywhere in the world. But I most admit that Florida`s pristine white sand beaches are superior to the ones in San Francisco.

I`ve been to Florida a couple of times, and I love walking on the beach picking up sea shells, admiring the bikini-clad ladies, and wading in the warm water.

It`s a shame that tar balls have started washing ashore in Brevard County, the words "tar ball" and "Florida beaches" should never be used in the same sentence.

The source of the tar balls in still unknown, but must likely you can place the blame on BP. Floridians and every other American who cares about the environment should consider boycotting BP. If any BP honcho comes to Florida he should be pelted with tar balls. Not really, I don`t condone violence, I`m just so outraged by BP`s carelessness.
