Bad Timing

From Common Dreams today:

Through a chemical fingerprinting process, University of South Florida researchers have definitively linked clouds of underwater oil in the northern Gulf of Mexico to BP's runaway Deepwater Horizon well - the first direct scientific link between the subsurface oil clouds commonly known as "plumes" and the BP oil spill, USF officials said Friday.

From The NYT today:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced that it is reopening more than 26,000 square miles of federal waters in the gulf to commercial and recreational fishing.

Consider me a no on the black sushi and the self-frying shrimp.
