Some place to hide form nothing at all.

Devil's in the details

As we are busy blaming "BP" for messing up the Gulf of mexico I would suggest a solution for oil barriers along the beautiful beaches there and in fact all along our coastlines.
First I will direct you to search floating "debris in the gulf of Mexico". There are enough objects floating there that if gathered and strung along the beaches could cover all the coastlines of our country I believe. It is floating so we would not have to buy new floating barriers, all we need is nets, which could be made from shredding more of the junk out in the ocean.
"BP" didn't put it there, it came from the cities along the waterways that feed into the gulf. 
Though much of it is oil products washed out of storm drains, a lot came from the "Beautiful" beaches and those "Valuable tourists" that are so afraid of getting a tar ball on their tootsies. They should come back and volunteer to help clean it if they really care! 
I also propose instead of dredging sand that will destroy animal habitat we build berms of the garbage that came from those beaches in the first place. It may be ugly to say the least but it would do more for the fish and birds in the region that get trapped in it than any other thing I can think of. The wild life doesn't want it and it's only fare that the people that made it take it back and recycle it or something. They need to pay for every bit of the pollution just like "BP", all of us who let that junk float out to sea should pay for it to be cleaned up!
If an honest look at what is in the ocean was done "BP" would look like small potatoes or in this case oil byproduct pollution.

And so I said "Of course I did and 20 more to boot! So quick up girl and give me food or ya get my foot to 20 league from tomorrow"
But with a smile she dumped the grub, twas in a tub, and said "Oh dear John you know I'm fond of you and your bravado but know this now I'm not your cow!" and left me wearing  red tomato.

Aesop updated

The old tale of Tortoise and Hare tells that falling asleep while doing a task is bad.

Jack the rabbit read it well, thought to himself, “the light this sheds is sad !”

No member of my global community is so lax, I’ll get that title back !
To that end he checked out the local Tortoise, Googling on his computer for every fact.

He bought goggles and bomber cap from a site on the internet .
And while he was at it, found some sites and placed a few side bets.

The odds were good, in the turtle's favor.
The money Jack knew he would soon savor !

Come race day the a crowd came out and the sun did shine.
The Tortoise was ready and Jackrabbit looked quite fine !

The race got started with a flurry and flash.
The rabbit was off like a shot but Tortoise got hung up in desert trash.

Jack was far out in front and in sight of the finish line .
But Coyote spied the race, thinking Tortoise and Hare would taste just fine.

Coyote joined in the race with turtle the first one he caught just rounding the bend, Tortoise pulled up shy in his shell and, though Coyote knocked, would not let him come in.
So off Coyote sped to catch his other prey but Jack saw him coming and did not want to be Din Din.

As things often go the race was a bust and no body won.
Jack was diligent and did not sleep, so lived to have another son.

Tortoise, though he was slow, lived long and finally came out.
But Tortoise forgot what the race was all about.

So when you hear another famous fable.
Just finish your spinach and clean up the crumbs before you leave the table.

So you may live long like Tortoise and Hare,
Though like Tortoise your mind may not be there.

And fast is good when you are fast as a bunny so you may outrun the danger.
Like Jackrabbit, you may have to change your course when chased by a stranger.
