Interesting. I heard there were some illnesses with students at Beverly Hills High School that may have had something to do with the oil. More to the point is the Los Angeles' population's complete ignorance on the subject. But hey, if something goes wrong, you at least don't have to launch a space shuttle mission to go and fix it. I mean really. The bottom of the seas is mostly still off limits for us. We have no business mucking around down there if we can't handle it when things go wrong. Hey, if Angelenos don't know there is an oil derrick, how are the Alaskan caribou going to find out.
