That oil spill in the SF Bay is really bad. They are talking about cancelling the entire Dungeness Crab season this year. Those poor fishermen! This is a prime time for them.

Last I heard the fishermen were just voting to delay the start of the season until further information on the health dangers associated with the crab could be determined. Hopefully it won't be cancelled for good!

I hope you are right. This is really hitting them in the pocketbook. It's great for Oregon!

They said on the world news tonight that it's a billion dollar industry - I sure hope they get some $$$ out of some of the poor creatures that survive - the poor birds and marine life - sigh - human error and lack of concern is slowly getting rid of all of God's animals -
