    At least 11 workers sought after oil rig explosion

    NEW ORLEANS At least 11 people were missing and seven injured after an explosion and fire at an oil drilling platform off the coast of Louisiana, the Coast Guard said Wednesday.
    Most of the 126 people were believed to have escaped safely after the explosion at about 10 p.m. Tuesday, Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Mike O'Berry said. It happened about 52 miles southeast of Venice on Louisiana's tip.
    The rig was still burning Wednesday morning and was listing about 10 degrees, O'Berry said.
    "It's burning pretty good and there's no estimate on when the fire will be put out," O'Berry said.
    O'Berry said there were conflicting reports coming in but at least 11 and possibly as many as 15 were missing.

    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    I'm sure that's the first of many. We need to wean ourselves off of oil and coal. The next generation coming up is going to be learning the new solar and wind industry which hopefully will replace the oil and coal industry. I even heard they are doing fascinating things with magnets.

    We just got an e-mail at work because so many people were asking if we had any one on that rig. We had 2 on there but they evacuated safely.

    My heart goes out to all the families affect by this. My husband works on offshore oil rigs, and from the time he leaves the house each hitch until he's back home, I'm nervous. I don't think people realize how dangerous it really can be.

    My condolences to the families, I can't imagine losing a love one and then never being able to find closure because their body was never found.
