Oil Spill???

Where exactly is the oil spill on the beaches in Mexico? I know the oil spill is really bad. I am very passionate about animals and the earth. But since I have a family I am not able to help with this problem except charity. So I really try not to pay attention and ignore because it makes me so upset I cant help. If I had no kids I would totalling be at the coast washing up all the animals in dawn :) Anyhow so can anyone tell me if us honeymonners will see it. We are staying just outside of Mazatlan.

    It is very sad, but you're honeymoon should be oil-free.  Mazatlan is on the Pacific side, not the Gulf side of Mexico. 

    Here is an interesting map I found, though...

    The whole thing with the spill pisses me off.  How can we drill when we don't have a way to plug up something like this??  I realize I'm probably sounding really ignorant by saying this, but I'm appalled that there is no plan in place for what to do in such an event.

    me too tygirl!! I really hate talking about the subject because I really know nothing about it except it is pumping out a bazillion gallons into our ocean. It really pains me just to think about all those poor sea creature or any animal affected by the spill.

    Thanks tv gal
