Should the USA be called BPA Instead?

CBS Kelly Cobiella is reporting that a CBS News team was threatened with arrest by Coast Guard officials in the Gulf. They claimed they were acting under the authority of BP. The crew was investigating massive amounts of oil coming on to a Florida beach. While most of us are wondering why the heads of BP, Transocean, and Halliburton aren't in jail facing charges of negligent homicide for 11 oil platform workers who died horrible deaths, these companies are apparently telling the Coast Guard to threaten reporters with arrest if they dare take pictures of oil slicks coming ashore, and have enough influence with the Obama administration that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - NOAA - have even pulled their three research ships in the Gulf away from looking into the spill or its effects. Apparently both BP and the Obama administration hope that out of sight will mean out of mind.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
