There are plenty of news items but I'm gonna take it slightly easy at first. We've got the Gulf oil leak. I call it a leak cause it isn't a spill, spills happen at the surface and the oil stays there, this is a deep problem that bubbles up from the bottom and gets caught in currents and keeps going. Drill baby Drill right? We need to find new ways of power in this country cause this oil dependance is going to kill us.
How can the Gulf recover from this? This is such an economically depressed area already and their 2 biggest industries are fishing and oil. They can't fish and now off-shore drilling is being questioned. How can they survive without these sources of cash flow? What is BP gonna do? Are they still gonna be profiting in the millions or billions at the end of the year while peoples lives are ruined? Stopping the leak has been the focus what about cleanup? What about the fact that the gulf coast has been being ruined for years cause of human interference? This is a huge issue.
What about this Wikileaks issue? I haven't even gathered much info about that so I can't say too much. It seems that the truth may be coming out, but I'm sure that those with the least facts on either side of the wars issues will pay no attention to the wikileaks anyway. People with extreme viewpoints don't appreciate real information they want propaganda. Keep your eyes on this story it's hot.
I know the sports page is Fresh's domain but the LeBron-a-thon extended past sports to news. He's kind of a big deal. Is this gonna change basketball? Will CP3 and Melo go to NYC to play with Amare next year? Does this show a bad example to the babies? Is it really that bad? Is there any validity in Big Mike's comments saying "In hindsight" he would have never done what they did. If that aint a monday morning quarterback statement I've never heard one. If I looked back at my legacy, 6 rings, statue and teammate who is also one of the 50 greatest in NBA history... Well after looking at all that yeah I wouldn't wanna change my past either.
Oh yeah and the gentle giant Manute Bol died.
R.I.P. Manute Bol. He was truly a great person who spent his time and money on trying to better his world and his home country. He was one of only 3 Sudanese born NBA players and he died because he was helping others. That's an athelete we should be able to use as a role model. Not cuase he was the best athelete but cause he was the best type of person, selfless.
