Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx visits BP’s Katrina


Ms. Manx is very concerned about a certain blown-out oilwell in the Gulf of Mexico. To that end, she’s been busily following the news by e-mail, tweeter and Facebook to bring you the latest:

A must-read blog. Chock-a-block with videos and photos of the spill. All the stuff BP no doubt doesn’t want you to know.

A must-see photo (courtesy Greg Palast.) One of the earliest photos taken of the rig that started the disaster. It looks like something out of a Star Wars battle sequence!

Also from Greg Palast, some interesting links between this disaster and the Exxon Valdez one of 20 years ago.

Don’t believe the hype about the Alaskan coastline being “pristine” now, either. It’s still far, far from it after all this time. So much for the myth that the oil will disperse, eh?

Whom should you follow if you’re on the tweeter? Well, Greg Palast is one; David Hulen is another. The latter is an Alaskan journo who covered the Valdez crisis.
