A remarkable collection of image of the oil leak in the Gulf....all from Boston.com (the Boston Globe).
Gerald Herbert shot whitecaps sloshing against the side of a ship near the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill for AP. As we all learned long ago, oil and water don't mix.
One of the many strategies that "experts" have come up with is doing controlled burns of the floating oil. This photo, distributed by Reuters, was taken by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Justin Stumberg--US Navy. Another plan now being contemplated is to stuff the leaking well with shredded tires and golf balls. Any plan that sounds like something I could think of is not a plan at all.
