According to the article the lower section of the floating plumes contain
very low concentration of oil making it less likely for the oil to sweep the
gulf floor.

The article does not address whether this is more serious than oil in the

We know that Obama waited a month to approve assistance to the marsh areas.

My son came into my office yesterday, all excited about the new I-Phone
which debuts soon. We have three AT&T renewals coming up in August. My
wife will probably get one, as will my daughter. As for me, I'm probably
going to stand pat with my Nokia smartphone. It tethers, handles calls very
well, has a long battery, very bright screen, good camera, and it's suitable
for e-mail and texting. I just don't need the fluff that I-Phones offer.'s tough as nails. I've dropped it twice in my driveway.
No damage.

I am intrigued with the I-Pad and may consider it when a 2nd generation
comes out. It would come in handy on my boat or RV....just to quickly grab
it, use a map or chart, go on-line, or download books. That's much easier
than firing up a laptop, especially in close quarters. Have you looked at
one for your own purposes??

No, you've got it backwards. Obama deserves it and Bush didn't.
