BP isn't alone (Story listed on this page)

Recently, all fingers have been pointing at British Petroleum (BP) for polluting the ocean with an obscene amount of oil, and while this blame is most certainly deserved, they are not the only group committing these crimes against nature.  If you want to know who else my be perpetrating such heinous acts as BP, simply look in the mirror.  You could be part of the reason for the floating garbage islands in the Pacific Ocean as could I, because every time that we fail to dispose of our waste properly it could find it's way to the largest body of water on Earth.  Check out this link to find out what I am talking about, and try to be more careful where you put your trash in the future.

In New York, the Governor gets ousted for frequenting prostitutes and his replacement doesn't seem to be much cleaner. The Governor from South Carolina is hiking the Appalachian Trail. Anti-gay activist George Rekers goes on a cruise with a male escort and most recently, Ted Haggard opened another church: Haggard was the minister in Colorado who preached against gay marriage, while engaging the services of a male prostitute and doing crystal meth.
