Red tide? HA! I've got a better one for you - bleeding glaciers:
"And the seas will run red with blood..." -- isn't that one of the signs of the End, when one of the angels breaks a seal... (from Revelation)? Fundamentalists can either rejoice and give up, or realize that this is a wake-up call to pay attention and get focused on fixing the damage that wrong-headed, irresponsible thinking has wrought upon the world...for doesn't the saying go "Ask not for whom the bell tolls - it tolls for thee"?
(Yep - mixing metaphors, allegorical references, memes and all sorts of other stuff...you wouldn't want to get into my head. Some areas are highly chaotic tempests fraught with peril...)
*Nothing below the fold. Because, Benghazi. No, er - IRS! Wait, wait...no, erm...Tyranny!
