I actually probably would still eat the seafood. I love seafood and order it all the time because it's healthier than burgers. Not once while eating seafood have I thought of mutated fish although I bet thats now going to change! In reality, by the time it's caught, skinned, prepared, cooked and on my plate in front of me, it would be a waste not to eat it. Kids in Africa would kill for the dinner scraps that I throw away, so I try not to look a gift horse in the mouth. That being said and my poor justifications aside, if I thought that not eating seafood would actually help kick BP out of the Gulf I would curb my appetite immediately. Not to mention that mutated fish may not be all that healthy in the first place!

Cant eat beef because of hormone injections, mad cow and pink slime, no veggies because of e. coli, if I can't consciously eat seafood then what's next?

Of course I probably would have voted no anyway because I never liked sea food. Good thing the way it is now.

Gulf of California, YES!. Gulf of Mexico, not so much. Let's hear it for Guaymas shrimp!

An Appeal from Thom Hartmann

Dear Friend,

I’m writing you today because the network on which my show airs, Free Speech TV, is only a few days away from the end of its fiscal year.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
