Oil on the bottom of the Gulf

Now that was a totally new experience! Last night I got to touch clay and mud fresh from the bottom of the sea, 1,300 meters (4,000 feet) deep in the Gulf of Mexico. That was fun. Today we pulled up a sample and opened the lid to see little patches of oil sheen bubbling up. That was sad.
