My big fear for the Gulf is this: What happens when the oil well gets capped or diverted permanently, and the "all clear" is sounded--and no more oil is escaping into the water? As I keep repeating on the air, they have a 90-day supply of oil in the water already. We (this network included) all must remember that this has changed a way of life, and an entire coastline. We can't let our levels of coverage or concern shift away from the good folks of that region. Just now I glanced up at the Weather Channel and saw an active Tornado Warning for Jefferson Parish, LA. How much are they supposed to take?
We hope you can join us for the broadcast tonight.
