Day of Prayer for the Gulf, and Father’s Day Wishes

By Doug Powers  •  June 20, 2010 11:40 AM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers So far, in order to end the catastrophe in the Gulf, we’ve tried yacht races, seemingly endless golf (“did you plug the hole on the 17th, daddy?”), baseball games, cute catch-phrases, McCartney concerts, looking for an ass to kick, delaying offers of assistance from other countries, idling skimmers for life […]

Obama: Gulf Spill Echoes 9/11 — FORE!

By Doug Powers  •  June 13, 2010 10:03 PM

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers You wouldn’t think it would be difficult for President Obama to understand why his response to the Gulf oil spill leaves many of us more baffled than Joe Biden in a Dunkin Donuts with no Indians behind the counter. Obama skipped the memorial service of those killed in the Deepwater […]

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers When you’re stuck in quicksand — or even a vat of thick oil for that matter — the first pointer in the survival manual is not to flail.
