We have more dead baby Dolphins washing up on the beach.

And this is why I’d be very careful about swimming in the sound and completely steer clear of locally caught oysters.  I think right now it pays to be very selective about locally caught seafood as there is so much we still do not know about the damage being done by the submerged oil from the BP/Transocean blowout, oil that would have been skimmed in other locales but some buttheads at Teams Obama and BP made the decision to mix the oil with Corexit at the well head so it would sink to the sea bottom, effectively concealing the true extent of the oil released.

Meantime Karen Nelson at the Sun Herald checks in with 4 more dead baby dolphins on Horn Island plus another in Alabama. In advance of Lawn Mower Fumes Bryant and Boss Hogg along with their stooge Bill Walker at DMR downplaying the deaths, Nelson puts things in perspective:

Four baby dolphins lay dead in the sand on the south side of Horn Island and one on Ono Island off Orange Beach, Ala., Tuesday.

That’s more dolphins dead in one day than all the dolphins, of any age, found dead in Alabama in 2008.

My mind is open to the possibility Teams Obama and BP have endangered the lives of the public by trying to conceal how much oil spilled from the blowout so the fines BP will pay under the Oil Pollution Act are minimized. To the extent Boss Hogg and Lawn Mower Fumes Bryant have constantly downplayed the impacts of the oil they too are complicit in this IMHO.

  1. Karen Nelson of The Sun Herald could do us all a favor (including particularly the Restaurants on the Gulf Coast which serve raw oysters) by pressing the Marine Biologists who have harvested the carcasses of the dead baby porpoises, and taken tissue samples, to release their clinical findings. Enough of this hysteria. Let’s get scientific. And most important to me are the recoedings and tgranscripts of the interviews with the baby porpoises parents. WHERE WERE THE PARENTS WHILE THESE BABY PORPOISES WERE DYING? (apologies to the dead Mommies who may have aborted their fetuses while the Mommies were drowning as a result of being caught in Louisiana Shrimpers’ trawls). Ashton O’Dwyer (Friend of “Flipper”).

  2. To get serious for a moment, I would like nothing better than to lay the dead baby porpoises at the feet of BP and “OZERO”, who allowed BP to use toxic dispersants on a scale heretofore unknown to mankind. However, even if Louisiana shrimpers are not responsible for catching Momma porpoises in their nets, while the Mississippi shrimp season is closed, “The SLABBED Nation” might be interested in reading http://www.fishingnj.org/artdolphgress.htm. It enlightened me to the fact that adult porpoises, particularly males, have been “observed in recurring acts of infanticide”, and more particularly KILLING recently-born baby porpoises, so that the Mother can be free to mate (after giving birth, some “Mommy” porpoises go for YEARS without mating, while the Mommy is nuturing her offspring). One thing I DO know: The 2/22/11 article by Karen Nelson of The Sun Herald reported that one of the “experts” opined that at least one of the baby porpoises he/she had examined had been “killed by trauma”. THAT death was NOT caused by BP’s or “OZERO’s” dispersants. Ashton O’Dwyer (Friend of “Flipper”).
