PR Insanity

Wow, the headline is really optimistic.

Turning the corner on the Gulf oil spill?

Then you get to the body of the story.

"Has the president turned the corner on the oil drilling crisis?
This week's schedule for President Obama suggests that the White House believes he has. After dominating the conversation in Washington all last week, the environmental crisis in the Gulf of Mexico does not appear front and center on the White House calendar

The Washington Post seems to think that diverting public perception away from the extinction event is "turning the corner" on the problem. A smarmy criminal class can declare a victory of sorts over the catastrophe simply by not having to address it. Jeebus have mercy on us all.
