Things I wanted to write about today: Certain Hollywood starlets being sent to the slammer, the ending to the movie "Inception", the oil_spill_clean_upPhillies current performance making me lose my appetite.

However, none of these things make the rankings on the USA.gov FAQ page of the most searched topics by citizens.

In response to the numerous inquiries we have received, today we talk about: the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Each night the news bums me out with reports of how many people and animals are being affected by this crisis, with no real solution to the problem in place. It didn’t surprise me that this was the #1 searched topic in the USA.gov FAQ database for the month of June. What DID surprise and please me was that the #1 searched issue was not the disaster itself, but how to volunteer to donate to help the relief effort. I’m thrilled that so many people are eager to take action to help, because placing blame ultimately doesn’t do anyone much good.

For state-specific volunteer opportunities check out: Restorethegulf.gov

If you have a boat that can be used to help aid in the clean-up effort go to: Restorethegulf.gov/vessels

If you personally want to volunteer to help, call: 1.866.448.5816

Do you know any other ways to help? What do you think can be done?
