RAW MILK: Public Enemy #1? (Photo: Grongar/Flickr)
It's happened again — my browser has piled up with good links, and I'm having trouble paring them down. Here's some news you should be reading:
• Oil Spill Gulf of Mexico 2010
: Nola.com put together a fantastic interactive infographic showing exactly what was going on under the Gulf of Mexico to stop BP's oil leak.
• Sharp curve in Maine nets another big fish spill
: Poor Esther MacLaughlin. Her yard sits near a particularly sharp bend in the road near the intersection of Route 189 and Route 1 in Maine. Last week, for the third time, a fish truck overturned on the curve and dumped its load — at least 22,00 pounds of herring — in her yard.
• Raw-food raid highlights a hunger
: I don't agree with the law banning the sale of unprocessed milk and other raw foods, but I understand the need to enforce it. Even still, did the cops really need to go in with guns drawn? Someone should lose his job for this one.
• One studio apartment, 20 rooms
: Hong Kong designer Gary Chang has turned his 350 square-foot apartment into a massive transformer that can morph into one of 20 different configurations.
