Directly lifted from BP's blog, and first mocked on the Rachel Maddow Show:
• Planet BP reporter Tom Seslar flies with an oil-spotting crew over the Gulf of Mexico and sees a deeper appreciation of the relationship between coast and sea and energy and nature than can be had on the ground or in a boat."Reporter" Tom Seslar, I have a message for you on behalf of America (and her reporters): go suck it.
• "It's strangely peaceful up here - just right for surrendering to some meditation.
• I'm filled with the wonderment of what's happening below our chopper only moments after it lifts off from an airport in Houma, La."
• "It's likely there will be no alternative to the Gulf as a key source of American energy for decades to come. That's why it is so essential to protect it. Even the most severe critics of the oil industry tend to accept that reality."
Flying higher to get closer to the spill response - 15 June 2010. There's more where that came from. Oh, they have a YouTube channel for this crap, too, specimen above. (BP.com)
