As Earl heads north, another oil rig explodes in the Gulf

Ladies and gentlemen, this just in.  The Vermillion Oil Rig 380 has just exploded 80 miles of the coast of Louisiana, with 12 people missing.  This is yet another painful reminder of how expensive our energy is becoming.  We will learn a lot more in coming days, but after the Deepwater Horizon, another accident is the last thing we need.

At In A Future Age, we are battening down the hatches in preparation for Hurricane Earl, headed our way in the next 36 hours.  I hope everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day weekend.
