CSPAN!



I think I can honestly say I have never been so excited to see a clip from CSPAN before. (That's kinda sad in a way).

It's really strange to see a photo of Lisa's displayed on the floor of the Senate.

A big Thank You to Zorlack who somehow found this and put it up on YouTube. You're amazing!

I remember this day so well. It was a day or two after the spill. We had just been kicked off the beach. A ranger asked us if we had seen the sign. We said we thought "no water contact" simply meant we weren't allow to touch the water. The next day, duct tape covering that part of the sign started appearing on notices all over the East Bay.


Lisa here. I just got the chance to watch the testimony, and was really moved by what was said.

And, admittedly, it was pretty entertaining to watch the Senator take his place at the speaker's podium, and see a disembodied hand place a large blow-up of a photo I had taken on an easel next to the Senator.


What can I say? I had to smile.

Happy to see your picture there! I wish they had supplemented it with some of the many way cool pictures you took of oil soaked birds and the bathing and rescue process!!
