So many things gone bad have come to light in the past couple of years. Things where money and profit was valued over morals, ethics, safety, and even human life. Predatory lending, banking and wall street deregulation, CEO and executive salaries and bonuses, and now the oil spill in the Gulf. When will people learn that money isn’t everything?

In a related note… as heartbreaking as it is to see the damage done to the wildlife and economy in the Gulf area, there has been no news coverage of the poor 11 people who died in the blast. That’s something that is nagging at me.
