Save Your Energy

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico gets worse and worse as the days go on. There seems to be no solution to the problem. Everything that the BP Corporation attempts to do does not work. They fail again and again to stop the flow of oil. In response, President Obama has expressed a great deal of anger. Commentators around the country have followed his example. Anger reigns supreme.

From my perspective, the President and everyone else should save their energy. There is no need to be angry about something that cannot be fixed. Whenever there is human endeavor there is a chance of failure. Whenever there is a mechanical device there is the possibility that it will have a flaw. That is just a fundamental fact of life and there is no sense getting all charged up over it. So, if you are angry over the oil spill, I suggest you save your energy. Get angry over things that can be fixed not over things that cannot be fixed.
