Yeah, me, too. "Obsessed" would likely be a better word. Or "sick with grief and anxious about the future of an ocean that has been ruined not just by corporate mismanagement and a lack of government oversight but also thanks to our ridiculous and gluttonous consumption of resources" (Okay, that was 37 words.)
Anyway, wouldn't it be nice to hold hands on Saturday with some other people who feel sad and upset and angry and freaked out by the whole thing, too?
I think so.

around the country to raise awareness about the dangers of offshore drilling
and call on leaders to end our oil dependence and move America into a clean
WHO: Representatives from Alaska Wilderness League, Audubon New Mexico,

Wilderness Alliance, Sierra Club and other concerned New Mexicans.
WHEN: Saturday, June 26 at 11:30 a.m.
WHERE: "Old" Alameda Walking Bridge- http://bit.ly/abqhands for a map.
Parking is on the west side of the river on the north side of Alameda.
