No more BP coeds at community meetings

It’s time to stop the “sorority teas” at the community meetings on the BP oil spill. If BP can’t have a knowledgeable person (male or female) who can answer technical, financial and legal questions, then don’t bother. City and county officials should refuse to sit on a stage or participate in a panel discussion that has the Sigma Chi Sweetheart representing British Petroleum.

Here is the Site Organization for Site Specific Health and Safety Plan for the BP spill. One of these people should be answering questions from the public—-not Chi O’s, Tri-Delts and Phi Mus rush chairmen.
