Mutts (7/3/10)

The ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has made a lot of people angry. And when people get angry, they naturally look for a villain to blame. For many people, that villain is the CEO of BP, who notoriously complained that he “wanted his life back.” Others find fault with the Obama Administration for issuing permits that allowed the rig to be built in the first place. But today’s Mutts seems to capture our national frustration best with its howl against oil. This may be an impotent howl, considering how deeply we depend on the stuff, but isn’t that the problem in a nutshell? We need oil to connect our sprawled-out cities and suburbs, and we’ll continue to use it no matter how foul the side-effects. @*#!! oil, indeed.
