Maybe we don't need scientist, engineers, government officials etc. to solve our environmental problems. We need only to look to the boys on the farms to come up with the answers. These good ol' boys appear to have a pretty good idea on solving the problem of mopping up oil in the gulf. I bet they would also be able to solve many of our social problems as well just using common sense. Lets hope they get it done before the oil spreads south to our sandy shores!
