The deathly disaster unfolding in the Gulf is God-awful enough. BP's
cover-up is even worse. Thanks be to the obstinacy of
photographers. The AP's Charlie Riedel took these stomach-turning photos. There is little to be grateful here

death, the destroyer of worlds." - J. Robert Oppenheimer

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
