It's the glasses propped at the end of Waterston's nose that closed the deal for me. The authority and intelligence that comes with such a precarious propping makes it impossible for me to support off-shore drilling any longer.
We should all be like Sam. We should all oppose offshore drilling and do so regularly (with reading glasses properly propped). But like Sam we should still allow ourselves to benefit from the off-shore drilling. Fill the gas tank, heat the home, fly to Washington DC to lord our moral authority over others, and of course make a gajillion dollars in the frivolous and unnecessary energy-sucking industry of entertainment.
No reason to be the change we want.
It's so easy to be a liberal. You'd think there would be more of them.
By the way, the organization Waterston's activisting for is Oceana, which was founded by "Cheers" star Ted Danson; the guy who told us in the late 80s that we only had ten years to save the oceans.
Hey, just because these people are always wrong about absolutely everything doesn't mean they're always always going to be wrong about absolutely everything.
