Video: Is it raining oil in Lousiana???

This YouTube video is pretty disturbing. It shows that sickening rainbow oil sheen that we've gotten used to seeing on the surface of the Gulf. But this time that sheen is on pavement, onshore, after a rain storm. It made me wonder if we've taken planet destruction to another level. Totally depressing. Maybe to cheer ourselves up we could do a show segment where we marvel at OTHER planets? Sure, you'd probably burn to death if you had to spend a summer on Mars but at least there are no oil spills there...that we know of...
