Graffiti at the end of the block, where I'm housesitting.
"Oh, the humanity!"
I overheard this conversation at the back of the city bus:
Man 1: You hear about the oil spill in the Gulf?
Man 2: I haven't had a TV for 6 months.
Man 3: Man, everything DYING! It killing all the animals* and plants and crawfish and everything.
Man 1: Don't listen to the TV, they just tell you what they want you to hear. Listen to the radio--AM 950 [Air America]. They'll tell you. This oil, it's all over everything! And it's just greed caused it. Greed!
Man 2: Why don't they clean it up?
Man 1: [pause] You ever try cleaning up a chicken dinner in cold water?
*Even the manatee?
Yes. Possibly even the manatee.
