Carol, great to see you leading the charge in the east bay.

We have oil-absorbent cloths available to you, if you can coordinate a truck for pick up.

We can show you on our unofficial process.

Classes are going to be available today thru GOVERNMENT blah blah

I personally have been calling those numbers since 11pm and through this morning - BUSY BUSY BUSY. This is the very reason we are doing what we are doing, the same people kept us on hold for 48hours after the accident only to tell us we are not needed on Friday at 8am. If they real want to train us, THEY need to come to the beach! We will be there all morning and day. ( I think they are actually afraid of water, we have not seen anyone out there in 3 days!!! )

In order to help the sleepwalking American public make the connection as to why these spills keep happening, I suggest we give the spill an official name, "The Dick Cheney Memorial Oil Spill." We can refer to it as the the Dick Cheney, or just The Cheney,as in "I hear the Cheney is all the way to Point Reyes", or "So far, the Dick Cheney has killed 537 birds and injured over a thousand more." - I would loove to hear that on the nightly news!
ALso, we are organizing in the East Bay for training and clean-ups for this next weekend. I could really use suggestions and contacts for where we can get the equipment and information we need. I can be reached on my cell at 510-414-4644 or at this email address. Thanks Brothers and Sisters.

It hurts to see many wildlife creatures suffers in the oil-spill that has taken place. It is also great to know that there are many organizations lending a helping hand to overcome this problem such as helping to clean-up the beaches and all. It would also be great if schools make programs where even the older school children, as a project help to save the wildlife or help to clean the place, in a safe way or in a student friendly way. The more the helping hand, the more better it is and will help solve the problem faster. This is only my suggestion to help save the wildlives.
Thank you.
