Gulf Coast clean-up

I drove up the West Coast from Arizona in the late 1980s and stopped for a short stroll on the beach in Santa Barbara. i was amazed to see the tar on the bottom of my shoes. It was a remnant from a spill that happened in 1969. Looks like this will be the state of things along the Gulf Coast for many years to come.
