Cassandra’s Nightmare by Kitty Mitchell
Friend Kitty Mitchell sent this back in July and I meant to put it up then but never got back to it.
Many on Ocracoke Island are opposed to offshore drilling for oil and Kitty paints the picture well.
Here’s what she said back in July – some things have changed since then, obviously, but the issue
still needs to be addressed strongly.
I know I’ve stepped in it this time, but I don’t care. The visions come for a reason so I’m passing it on. My newest painting is a post card to Senators Dole & Burr, and also to Congressman Walter Jones, and to Mr. McCrory. Three cheers to Bev Perdue who is the ONLY candidate so far that has refused to endorse off shore drilling. This will not be good for our economy. We have a thriving tourist and fishing industry that does not need to invest our resources in old polluting technologies when we are so capable of doing better for ourselves, our children and our planet. We have more wind than oil, it’s ours and it can’t be shipped to China. Feel free to use this image to save our coast, I only ask for artistic credit.
