Galveston

"More tar balls were found scattered along 1.5 miles on East Galveston Beach on Sunday. Officials have not confirmed the source of those tar balls, and are expecting test results on Tuesday." - Tar balls from oil spill found on Bolivar coastline (July 5, 2010)

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'
I still see your beaches glowin'
I was was sixty one, when I first saw Galveston

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea-waves crashing
While I watch the oil smashing and.
We know BP has won, but I still dream of Galveston

I still see you standing by the water
Standing there lookin' out to sea
And are you waiting there for me?
On the beach where I used to run

Galveston, oh Galveston, we know BP is lying
And I dry the tears I'm crying
While I watch the sea birds dying in the sun
At Galveston, at Galveston

Apologies to Jimmy Webb and Glen Campbell (1969)
