Triumph Gulf Coast: “efficiency and effectiveness”

It’s almost impossible to understand it if you weren’t here then.

One April morning in 2010 the Gulf of Mexico exploded. Hundreds of millions of gallons of oil roared up out of an undersea volcano and smeared across 70,000 miles of ocean.

I recently made a mistake that was nonetheless correct.

Like some of you, I began typing with the hunt-and-peck method. I was certain that some fiend came in every night and rearranged all the keys.
