Holy cow - it's worth a try! Unfortunately, it's probably WAY too simple and WAY too inexpensive for the government to even consider.

Not a huge fan of Haliburton, either pro or con, but in a way wouldn't it be hilarious of Obama - of all people - had to bring them on for the cleanup.

The negotiating can be done in Cheney's refreshing oxygen chamber.

I understand they are also using hair to glop it up.

I wouldn't go breathing easy - would you drink from a pitcher of water that had been contaminated by oil that they used hair and straw to filter out? I hear that fisherman are all starting to request damages...

Nope. But that's not the point.

It appears that there is something that is readily available, is cheap and easy to use. Throwing this Bermuda Grass Straw out there may not be a 100% cure, but it's a heckuva lot better than anything they're currently doing!


Seriously, I am the only one who is a little shocked and appalled that they're essentially doing NOTHING to try to keep this oil from spreading? Shouldn't they be doing at least SOMETHING?

Shocked you asked? How about so sad I could cry at what BP morons are doing to clean up this spill. It's like they want to kill the oceans and then the planet.......for profit.
