Re: Oil Spills
Oh c'mon, guys! Don't be so hard on the little fella! He's only trying to fit in. It's the equivalent of going to your friend's work party, being left in the position to talk with somebody you don't know, and saying, "So, how 'bout those Dodgers?" These drum forums can be scary, awkward places. Anyways, here's some more of the goods...
Oil began washing up on the beaches of Gulf Islands National Seashore on June 1, 2010. By June 4, 2010, the oil spill had landed on 125 miles (201 km) of Louisiana's coast, had washed up along Mississippi and Alabama barrier islands, and was found for the first time on a Florida barrier island at Pensacola Beach. On June 9, 2010, oil sludge began entering the Intracoastal Waterway through Perdido Pass after floating booms across the opening of the pass failed to stop the oil. On June 23, 2010, oil appeared on Pensacola Beach and in Gulf Islands National Seashore, and officials warned against swimming for 33 miles (53 km) east of the Alabama line.
