interesting website that puts the geographical extent of the gulf oil spill into perspective. in the same sort of way that i felt disconnected and skeptical of the extent to which romans slaughtered animals in the colosseum, a lot of times when reading about the oil spill (or any disaster) i don't quite get how bad it is. this website shows how far the oil is spreading - how much land it would cover centered on your hometown.

They show it all along the coast (disgusting), but since the spew has yet to be stopped, would there not be oil entirely from the spew site towards the coast?
