I can't stomach looking at any more oil-soaked animals, and I certainly don't want to spring them on you. So here's a shot of "Alabama Surf".
Doesn't it look like blown glass? Or marbled paper? I think its all the more frightening for how beautiful it is.

Margaret commented that "oil spill" hardly seems adequate to describe the horror. Vidiot Speak (and others? I don't follow political blogs) refers to it as an oilcano.
And, another manatee. (You know, "oh, the humanity!" came from the original coverage of the Hindenberg disaster.)
Found at Dr. X's Free Association; but originally from Vidiot Speak?
(I cant find it there, but Dr. X gives it a "h/t", which means "hat tip," according to Blogossary.)
