    Oh, be nice. He's 21 and passionate. I bet you were, too, about a hundred years ago.

    If you've ever had any experience along the Gulf Coast you already know why the beaches and water along the upper Texas coast aren't as clear as the beaches and water along the coast east of the Mississippi. The further east of the Mississippi you go the more clear the beach water is. The same is true in that the further south along the Texas coast and on in to Mexico the clearer the beach water gets. This is due to the silt from the Mississippi River flowing counterclockwise along the coast.

    When you get a few miles offshore along the upper Texas coast the water is as crystal clear as it is along the Florida gulf coast, because you are free from the close in shore current and the 'mud' from the Mississippi River.

    Yes the winds and offshore current now favors the bulk of the spill's eastward movement, because the bulk of the spill is offshore. The parts of spill that gets close to the shore, that part of the spill will favor a westward movement towards the upper Texas coast due to the natural current. How much will depend on several factors, such as, how much of the spill will flow close to the shore and how much will be absorbed by the Louisiana coast.

    Well that was constructive.

    Well, when everyone else has been discussing protocol, solutions, damage estimates, wind/water currents, and what needs to be done you've come in with a completely irrelevant attack on Sarah Palin. Considering she isn't the Louisiana governor, an officer of BP, or any other way related to this particular problem I don't see why you would bring her up except to take yet another hackish political swipe at a time when it is really not the classiest or best time to do so. Remember, 11 people lost their lives and the coast is facing a threat..........so maybe you'd like to examine your tact.

    I still want to know what, or who, blew this platform up? Oil spill catastrophe aside, this just doesn't feel like an accident.
