Like everyone else, I've been keeping a wary eye on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. It's horrible, destructive, and the last attempt to fix it failed. Fortunate for me and my East Coast friends we are out of harms way - at least for the time being. Although a solution seems to have been found it may not have been soon enough to prevent the ooze from reaching a major ocean current that could carry it through the Florida Keys and up the East Coast. Not good.
