Plaquemines Parish revisited September 10, 2010

Sep. 14, 2010 2:24 pm

Pictures can often speak louder than words. On Friday, September 10th, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana reported a massive fish kill of pogies, redfish, drum, crabs, shrimp and freshwater eel, with a dead whale found nearby. Surprisingly scientist have also discovered a 2" layer of oil approximately 1 mile below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico with dead shrimp and fish buried beneath it. Ian MacDonald, a biological oceanographer from the Florida State University, commented:

"The oil did not disappear, it sank."

BestThinking to be Updated this Weekend

If all goes well you will see a change in the layout of BestThinking's Home and Category pages. Topics & Articles and Blogs & Books will no longer be shown in two separate columns.

All 4 content types (Articles, Blogs, Books, and Topics) will be Featured Content together as one continuous stream, although the column structure - one wide and one narrow - will remain the same. The first (wide) column will now flow into the second (narrow) column. This change is in response to Blogs becoming as important a content type as Articles and Topics. This will also give Featured Content more time on the Home page which is helpful regarding search engines indexing this content.
