I have serious concerns that our food supply will be tainted by the oil spill out in the gulf. It is hurricane season; that oil will be spread so far out into land and it will be impossible to contain the mess. Do you think food prices will go up? Do you think we will even be told it's contaminated?

I'm sure as the drilling ban comes into play (and the possible push thru of the crap and tax bill) the cost of everything will go up, including food. I don't eat seafood except for crab legs and those come from Alaska. I don't know about the rest of the food supply, but it's always a thought.

Nope, not at all. People act like this is the first oil spill in the Gulf. There was one by Aamoco that lasted 10 months in 1979. I know many of you were born after that, but I got married in 1979 and didn't remember it. Maybe the Iranian hostage crisis overshadowed it, but it happened. Our food supply is fine. The fishing industry recovered. The Gulf, bless is heart, survived that before all the recent hurricane activity.
