The headline could read, Curse of being a poor country. CURSE OF THE BLACK GOLD: 50 Years of Oil in the Niger Delta is simply unforgivable. In the wake of our own oil spill disaster, at least I have hope that we will clean that mess up faster than say, the Niger Delta has luck doing. But as I saw on some news story about Alaska shores and how if you just lift a couple of rocks you can still see a sheen, meaning, there is still oil there. I don't think these sort of tragedies are ever completely "cleaned up". These are the images breaking my heart. I am saying my prayers for all the folks trying to deal with the reality of this disaster on our back door.
