This Is Your Republic on Oil

The following items are covered in this American Zombie post:

1. The Department of the Interior or the Department of Justice may (or might already) open a criminal investigation into the Deepwater Horizon explosion.

2. BP continues to use more toxic, less effective, and more costly dispersants when biodegradable oil cleanup is available from smaller businesses. Several former BP and Exxon executives sit on the board of the company that produces the more toxic, less effective and more costly dispersant.

3. Coast Guard officials, acting under "BP's rules" threaten a CBS camera crew with arrest.

Next up, Maitri has a Day 30 roundup that illustrates where we are with this after a month. The short: not very.

She includes this article which discusses the current popular confusion over "natural" and "man-made" disasters.

Finally, Lukovich responds to oil on Gulf beaches.
