It’s now Tuesday, so the weirdness that was Monday has passed. Or so we thought!

I awoke this morning to the same headlines as everyone else: The Runaway General. That’s the name of the incredible new piece in Rolling Stone with the subtitle, “Stanley McChrystal, Obama’s top commander in Afghanistan, has seized control of the war by never taking his eye off the real enemy: The wimps in the White House.” Yikes!
So, obviously, no shortage of things to talk about today!
The people at BP must be thanking God for Stanley McChrystal today. But while we’re preoccupied with insubordination, the oil keeps spewing from the ocean floor into the Gulf of Mexico. I came across an interesting piece today on BuzzFlash, written by Nikolas Kozloff (author of No Rain in the Amazon: How South America’s Climate Change Affects the Entire Planet) entitled“BP Oil Catastrophe Unleashes a Hidden Toxic Killer of Life and Climate: Methane.” He’ll also join in for a quick explanation of this “800 pound gorilla” in the gulf.
