Stratified Beaches, Courtesy of BP?


We dug a hole at the beach today and found stratified layers of black matter between the sand. All of the dark layers were within 6 to 12 inches of the surface and we did not find any  similar discolorations  below that depth. (The hole went down at least 2 and 1/2 feet.) What do you think? Was this part of the gift that keeps on giving from BP’s Macondo Well? If so, what kind of dangers might this residue pose?
Dangers and damages aside, gulf residents still have gorgeous sunsets to enjoy, but at what cost? (Another distributive justice dilemma.)
