Wow. Over at the Village Voice's Runnin' Scared blog, Foster Kamer has this video shot by YouTube user "CopperTheRabbitDog," who finds himself on Destin Beach on Florida's Gulf Coast and finds it dotted with goops of oil. From a distance, all seems perfectly normal, until you zoom in and see the alien chunks of sludge on the sand.
Oh, and then you come to the little girl, begging her mother to get the oil off of her foot.
Kamer has more, here. CNN notes that the Pensacola Bay Area Convention and Visitors Bureau has said, "Depending on the wind direction, tar balls may float ashore in Destin or Ft. Walton Beach later in the week, but cleaning crews are standing by." I don't see any cleaning crews, do you?
And this is great news, too! "The Boiling Oily Beaches of Pensacola".
