The Deepwater Horizon exploded one year ago today and the real impact of this will probably not be known for hundreds of years. I grew up on the Mississippi Gulf coast and a friend of mine was on that oil rig the day it exploded. He is an engineer and was thankfully not injured, but the 11 people who died are being remembered today all over the world.
On a more upbeat note....I have eaten Gulf seafood recently and it is just a delicious as always. If you have access to it, buy Gulf seafood and support the recovering industry!
