My local paper ran a story yesterday with the headline: "Oil Spill May Benefit Texas" all about how hoards of vacationers who are driven away from the eastern Gulf by the oil will flock to Texas beaches. Oy. But I was glad to see that they were roundly blasted in the comments, where one usually finds a generous sampling of wingnuttery. There were, as of this morning, 22 comments and all of them in agreement that the story was in poor taste and refected badly on the paper's editors.
