Tuesday, July 11, 2006 | When I paddled out on my surfboard recently, I was among pelicans, terns and dolphins. But the marine life may be replaced with oil residue if Brian Bilbray gets his way.

Bilbray and the House of Reprehensibles recently voted to repeal the ban on offshore oil drilling.

While the Congress holds pointless “dog and pony” road show hearings to keep the focus on immigration during an election year, some of us will not be so easily distracted.

The oil industry sure got its money’s worth by funding Brian Bilbray. How did he forget to tell us that one of his first votes would be for the oil rigs off our coast?
