excellent Bay Daily.

Will Baker's quote is stated, so on target.
technology breakdown, human error, weather
are all issues,
PLUS we'd be moving in the wrong direction. we need our every energy decision to move us toward energy conservation and clean energy.


happy to read Jim Webb and Mark Warner have joined in opposition.

Last week, I was shocked when I found out the ocean area between Ocean City and VA Beach were closer to off shore drilling than I realized ... the plan was well advanced and hearings were already scheduled.

The mid Atlantic shore is too valuable to risk. all of our shorelines are too valuable to risk ... with only one ocean.

Thanks, Bonnie.

A remaining question in my mind is this: Has the Obama Administration permanently taken off the table the idea of drilling east of Virginia? Or have they just temporarily cancelled the so-called "lease sale 220," in that region? And, of course, without a Congressional ban, any future administration can resume plans for drilling in that area.

If anyone out there knows more about this, please weigh in.

that is great news - the blue crabs should be dancing with joy! As I watch the Gulf Coast disaster unfold I can't help but think that I would never want to see this happen to the Chesapeake Bay where I boat and consider to be one of the best places on earth. I'm sure Gulf residents feel the same way about their waters. The whole situation is sad.
