Subject: happy? - Mar 24 ('Exxon Valdez')
From: Abby Sale
Date: 24 Mar 06 - 08:20 AM

In Prince William Sound, Alaska

on 3/24/1989
at about 12:15 AM

the Exxon Valdez dumps 11 million gallons of oil.
         I cannot help but love the land but we're treating her like our young whore
        When the eagles & the fish lie heaped all along the blackened shore
        And now we just pay more for fuel the cost has been pasted down we learn
        And the helpless anger that I feel, it could make these waters burn

                "The Wreck Of The Exxon Valdez" by Geoff Bartley [thanx Barry Finn]

Not long after I heard this extra verse for 'What shall we do with the drunken sailor':

'Put him in charge of an Exxon tanker'
