I thought about calling this blog Black Plague, but BP will eventually stop the spewing well--although it will take 50 years or so for the Wetlands to fully recover. That may well be too late for many species that live only here. Others, like the bluefin tuna, blue crabs, porpoises, oysters, and brown pelicans, can be reseeded. Anyway, Black Plague sounds a bit dreary and moribund.
I am smoking a pork butt. It has been going 5 hours and should be done soon--I entertain visions of pulled pork on whole wheat bagels that I made yesterday.
