Not just a river in Egypt

Apparently Britt Hume thinks if you can't see the oil on the beach, then it's not really there. A notion he stole from Limbaugh and sadly his loyal Fox viewers will probably adopt.

Of course, because of the tons of dispersants they dumped on it, millions of gallons of crude are roiling below the surface and no one knows what the long term effect on the subsea ecosystem will be. Meanwhile computer models show some oil has entered the Loop Current, sending it toward the Keys and "the third largest barrier reef in the world."

I hope I'm wrong, but I have a feeling that these chemicals are going to enter the food chain and years from now, the scientists will figure out this containment methodology caused genetic harm to humans and the sea life.
