The BP in Crude Oil

As oil giants boasted billions of dollars in record profits for decades, I wonder if the BP oil disaster could have been averted or better contained with more profit allocated to the science of developing better emergency management safeguards. Let's break it all down for the kin folk. As far as government regulation goes, I am required by law to wear a seatbelt restraint just to operate my personal vehicle with the gasoline in question.
In an age when we need to lessen our dependency on petroleum and explore greener alternatives, drilling for oil should not occur this close inland or at an ocean depth that we risk destroying one side of the country in a single accident. Watching an underwater smokestack of oil pollute the ocean at a rate of millions of gallons per day exposes corporate greed at the expense of a social responsibility to the planet. Spectating a man-made disaster day after day for months with no end in sight is unmerciful.
The first thing you know old BP is a millionaire but the kin folk say its called crude oil for a reason.

Outlaw Joey Wails About Role

Jimmy Smits in Outlaw
A TV pilot that I worked on as an extra has been officially green lit to air on NBC this fall. Originally titled Garza, this legal drama will star Jimmy Smits as a former Supreme Court Justice who quits the bench to represent the little guy.
I played a casino gambler and a capital punishment protester in episode 1.1. Regarding the latter role, the cast braved harsh elements to film a dicey outdoor scene at Resorts Casino so it would be justice if the little guys made the final cut.

I saw a picture of a watermelon carving in a family magazine. The idea seemed ripe at the time but it took me another five years to get around to carve my first one into a colorful fruit bowl. The furled ribbon on top brings out the abundant green of the melon. I wish I had tackled this project sooner. The meloncholy of life bowls me over while ruminating over the things I aim to accomplish with a sharp knife.
