Oil spill 75% gone

Officials are reporting very good news that the spilled oil is disappearing. I suppose it is a cobination of factors from skimming, dispersal chemicals ocean currents and the like.


I wonder how much credit can be attributed to the mighty mississippi flushing trillions of gallons of water into the gulf. Excess rainfall throughout much of farm country must have produced an abundance of out flow along with millions of gallons of dispersants.


No matter what the cause of the positive improvement, we should be most thankful that the nightmare might be drawing to a close. Hopefully, cleanup crews are successful in cleaning up the beaches and marshes. A return to normalcy will be welcomed.
