I and obviously others have been trying to volunteer to help with the oil disaster on our coast. This is nearly impossible. Why? Should there not be a workable public facility to volunteer? We are directed to the Mississippi Volunteers agency that sends us to a web site, where we apply. Or think we do. All information is that BP is controlling the clean up. But what about the people that want to protect and defend their beaches and shores from the very people that in all probability caused the problem to manifest? I would not mind working with BP, but I do not want to work for them. There are all sorts of people who are calling to volunteer and being shelved for lack of direction. Can you find some for us?
