    "The latest computer model predictions reveal that the plume of underwater oil may have already entered into the loop current. This would slingshot the oil into the Atlantic Ocean around the Florida Keys and up the eastern coast of Florida and potentially portions of the eastern seaboard of the United States."

    Won't it be ironic if it washes ashore on the shores of BP's home country?

    IF it does, I wonder if the BP CEO will still consider the leak "tiny"?

    Well, I'm glad I got to see North America's only living coral reef up close while we still had it.

    I wish Meeks will just get it--Democrats can't win major positions in Florida. There are now more undecideds than People chosing Meeks at the moment.

    Meeks--Quit! Your political career ended when you decided no to run for the House!!

    At this point I think he is the only one of the candidates that has always been against drilling for oil offshore. Come November if the shores are coated and the coral reef destroyed that might matter to voters. Of course, if that happens Florida will be a ghost state.

    I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Obama and the Democrats were secretly funneling money to her. There is nothing that would unite the democrats more that Sarah Palin.
