Summer Of Oil

Lovely Destin, Florida, June 23, 2010, 3 p.m.:

I'm watching a toddler get this crap on the bottom of his/her feet and have to wonder at the people letting their kids play in this stuff. Do they not know that it's toxic? Their great solution is to pack Goo-Gone with them? Are you people insane? Goo Gone is petroleum based, for crying out loud. Even the manufacturer says to avoid repeated and prolonged exposure to the skin.

Is Florida's tourism business more important than people's health? Why in God's name has Destin not closed its beaches? This is incredibly irresponsible.
