Relief Well 

What with all the warm feelings we've developed for the Macondo Prospect oil field (500 feet under the Gulf of Mexico) since beloved energy company BP finally capped the gushing well, it may come as a surprise that some people still have hard, prickly feelings about the company's lapses in safety, drilling practices, and the indiscriminate use of chemical dispersants in a sensitive biome. No, really. At 6 p.m., a BP protest gathers outside the Keyhole Gallery (1903 Wyandotte) for a march through the Crossroads District. Organizer Valorie Engholm says, "Basically, it's going to be kind of a sarcastic protest. We'll be presenting ourselves as people who have gotten rich off oil. We'll be expressing sarcastic outrage that people actually want to end offshore drilling. We need offshore drilling so we can pay for our evening gowns and mansions. It's a lot of satire and a lot of fun."— Chris Packham
