Where’s the weasel?

Dear Editor:

It has now been two months since that well exploded in the Gulf of Mexico and began gushing oil into the surrounding sea. It is rather curious that one rather vocal supporter of the oil industry, Dick Cheney, our former vice president, has been completely silent.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that he is an oil spill unto himself and was responsible for establishing the Bush administration’s environmental standards, standards established in a series of secret meetings, meetings that excluded most environmental groups.

Gosh, I would really love to hear from that weasel.
