It's not over

I'm a bit disturbed by how the media has recently been portraying the oil spill incident. Yes the leak has stopped (for now), yes BP has been filling the well with mud and soon cement...these are both fantastic, but it's not over, not by a long shot. I've heard reports that most of the oil has been scooped up, burned or evaporated. I just can't believe that's the case. I can't begin to imagine how much has sunk (which will continue to cause problems), how much is still trapped in marshes, or how much oil (or dispersants for that matter) lies within the bodies of countless fish, birds, crabs, etc. Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there...

Crabs filled with "black substance"
