But in a letter to BP chief managing director Bob Dudley, Admiral Allen said: "Given the current observations... including the detected seep a distance from the well and undetermined anomalies at the well head, monitoring of the seabed is of paramount importance...

SNIPES DOWN; TEMP UP. A
Wesley Snipes conviction and 3 year sentence (for misdemeanors no less) was affirmed by the 11th Circuit and guess who has all the coverage on his thoroughly federal blog?
Willy Ferrer was sworn in as the US Attorney for The Southern District of Florida on Friday (yawn) and after all the speeches and blah blah blah everyone went home on Friday no worse for the wear. Eric Holder the US Attorney was present, and that was nice to see, especially since he picked perhaps the only place in the country hotter with more humidity than DC.
Good Monday morning. It's another hot Monday in Miami where male attorneys still have to wear coats and ties to court. Under any other circumstances if you saw a man walking down the street wearing a coat and and a tie where it was 98 degrees and 95% humidity you might be tempted to question his sanity. Except if he was a lawyer on his way to court.
What can Brown do for you? Not much yet.
The Republicans (Motto: "science shmiance" ) tell us that there's no such thing as global warming.
The NY Times reports that NASA says that the January-through-June period this year was the hottest globally since measurements began in 1880. ...
Glacier National Park now has only about 25 glaciers, compared with around 150 a century ago. In the Himalayas, the shrinkage seems to be accelerating, with Chinese scientific measurements suggesting that some glaciers are now losing up to 26 feet in height per year.
HOW NOT TO GET OUT OF A TRAFFIC TICKET...
Especially if you've just been offered a job as a prosecutor.
1) Don't curse at the officer; 2) Don't play the race card; 3) Don't dare the officer to arrest you for having illegally tinted windows and mention that you were just hired at the prosecutor's office.
Having done all of the above, Ms. Lisa Jones-Hall still got her ticket....and lost her job she hadn't started yet. Thanks to ATL for this gem.
And just to pile on because it's Monday, we leave you with the disturbing possibility that not only is the cap on the well in the Gulf not working, but that BP may have screwed the pooch for the surrounding seabed- meaning that even when the well is capped the oil may still leak from the seabed for.....well forever.
See you in court, wearing a coat and tie.
