    for killing microorganisms rather than birds is the fragility of birds.  A happy microorganism evolves quickly and reproduces rapidly.  The fish are a real concern- certain fish like some kinds of tuna are only reproducing in the Gulf, and some may be really decimated.  But fish will have thousands of offspring as well.  Birds have one or two offspring.

    There are only bad choices and worse choices here.  We need more skimming and physial cleanup, but then we get so many people out there in the fumy air.

    Obama has OKed digging the berms around some rookeries and islands, but the BP folks are now saying, if you do that, it is your experiment, not ours.

    The biggest conclusion I am reaching is that the bureaucrats are genuinely trying and even the woman who stepped down from MMS was not the villianess fall guy.  We need a whole lot less niavity and frankly a lot of money to fix this problem.  I share your frustration with the bad results to date.

      We need to keep asking these questions.  That is the right open-minded response.  I am not trying to depate as much as seek answers and try for the best solution we can get to with data we can assemble.
