Meanwhile, on or just below the surface...

• BP is still on record denying underwater plumes, despite new evidence (better late than never!) collected by teams of scientists. Don't expect BP to pay for, or even be forced to acknowledge the vast majority of the spill, that which is still suspended in the water column (thanks to carcinogenic dispersants, so toxic they are banned in the UK) killing everything that feeds every creature in the ocean.

• Mac McClelland has been covering BP's outrageous and undemocratic clampdown on media coverage of the spill better than almost anybody else. How long will this behavior by BP be tolerated? Two months? Five?

• A decent New York Times summary from earlier today is here.
