Dumbass-ery of the Day

The Independent reports that Platform A has leaked 1,134 gallons of oil into the Santa Barbara Channel, as of early this morning. An oil slick 1.5 miles long and 2,000 feet wide is drifting toward Ventura County. As the Independent points out, Platform A was the site of the massive 1969 spill that galvanized the environmental movement of the time, including the first celebration of Earth Day.
