Quote of the Week [9/21/2010]


  "Oil at least two inches thick was found Sunday night and Monday morning about a mile beneath the surface. Under it was a layer of dead shrimp and other small animals, said University of Georgia researcher Samantha Joye, speaking from the helm of a research vessel in the Gulf. The latest findings show that while the federal government initially proclaimed much of the spilled oil gone, now it's not so clear. ... Government scientists acknowledge they've not done enough to look for oil in the obscure corners of the Gulf's bottom, but promise to do a better job." — The Associated Press' Cain Burdeau and Seth Borenstein, Sept. 13
