Gulf Disastor Update

Not much has happened on the Gulf since last Friday. More oil has gushed out (We are talking about a lot of oil). A new fishing ground has now closed. Unfortunately the press is begining to lose interest in this disastor and my guess here is that the oil spill, though devistating, is way out of the reach of the average pundit, at least journalistically. The wind and the waves have slimed more marshes making them even more problematic from a bird standpoint…but I see much of the ecological damage on the gulf as still unfolding, and described or analysed, in research that is long term.
