Will the shrimp in the Gulf of Mexico
taste even better now that BP has them soaking in oil?

6. I stopped eating Gulf Shrimp
after the Oil Spill. Now, I won't be eating the Taiwan shrimp either. I am in NY now and eating Northern Clams and cold water seafood, until I get sick of it.

I guess I won't being eating seafood at all when I go back to Florida. Maybe I will even start drinking BOTTLED WATER there too.

Very sad.

7. Most of us are not eating shrimp or any other seafood from the Gulf, and it is heart

wrenching for us. On top of BP we now have yet another spill. I don't believe that much will still be alive in the Gulf when the oil companies pull out. They will, of course, leave with a mess that they will never clean up, sorta like they did to the swamp (Atchafalaya Basin) where they drilled and left crap and oil everywhere. It's much too expensive to clean up after themselves you know? Why don't we have an effective EPA in Washington or in Louisiana? Money they keep stuffing down lawmakers pockets so they look the other way.

8. I haven't eaten shrimp since the spill, either. I bought some oysters at Winn Dixie that were from
Washington state for oyster dressing, & I've been buying timpani fish from California a lot lately.

I miss seafood so much!

13. You've been eating it, cajun?
:spank:

I'd feel better eating seafood if it were farm-raised.
