Well, shit.

According to a CBS News Correspondent, BP’s test last week of Kevin Costner’s oil filtration technology ended in failure.

The company had taken one (or more?) of the centrifuges to some marshes off the Louisiana coast, but they became clogged once started up. According to the report, BP is going to “tweak” the machines and then give them another shot sometime this week.

26 of the devices have been approved for testing in the Gulf. Perhaps they would be better suited for open-water filtration?

More as we get it.

I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
