Scientific control


Did anybody make it to the Jimmy Buffett concert at Gulf Shores? I wasn’t there, myself, but the big news today is the new “cap” that has been placed by BP on their runaway oil well. Supposedly, it could stop the flow of oil completely, if it works as designed. They say it will take from six to 48 hours to know how effective it will be. From what I’ve seen so far, I’d say it’s going to work if it works almost immediately. If down the road, say 36 hours, they’re saying things like, “We’re not sure yet,” then it’s not going to work. Here’s hoping.
