Due to public outcry, the Coast Guard has lifted the ban on reporters and photographers on the oil spill

Well whaddya’ know!

A new article on Washington’s Blog says “Due to popular rage at the ban on reporters and photographers from within 65 feet of the oil spill, Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen has rescinded the ban. Specifically, Allen announced tonight that the media will have full access, as long as they do not interfere with safety or security.”

Glory Hallelujah!!!

I’ll have to take back some of the bad things I said about the Coast Guard now.

Thank you Admiral Thad Allen for doing the right thing.

Now! We! Need! More! Photos!

Here’s the link to the Washington’s Blog post and here’s the original press release on the Deepwater Horizon Response website.
