I underestimated the power of satire. Evidently my latest blog about being a background extra as an oil clean up worker was taken seriously. I apologize to anyone who may have forwarded the posting as a true account of an actual event. It was not. I was drawing from my experience as a film background actor and recent reports from the Gulf Coast where staged news clean ups are taking place. It was not my intent to mislead anyone or any news agency into believing that the incident was real. It was written in a satirical vein.
In the future I will post disclaimers to prevent a humorous posting from being taken seriously.
