Looks like the oil spill will be the big story for the next several weeks:

Because there sure isn't much else going on. Legislation is thin. Elections of all types are far off. About the only thing that could compete would be a financial crisis.

This spill will be different in one sense: We all have many more quality image recording devices and the means to share (digital cameras, Flickr, YouTube), so expect to see some pretty amazing (though disturbing) scenes of how the spill affects much of the Gulf Coast.

UPDATE: CBS reports:
In Congress, Republicans like House Minority John Boehner have yet to speak out about drilling. One House GOP leadership aide says that the party is staying quiet because they are wary about coming on too strong for drilling offshore while the ocean is still on fire ...
Yes, it would probably be best to be silent while the ocean is on fire.


What about the anarchy and violence of tomorrow's May Day demonstrations?

Just like there was last year?

Close to 20 businesses were damaged after what started as a peaceful immigrants' rights march in downtown Santa Cruz turned violent, requiring police to call other agencies for help, authorities said ... A fire was started in a coffee shop entryway but was extinguished once police cleared the way for firefighters, Friend said.

Eighteen businesses were damaged, with the cost of repairs estimated at between $50,000 and $100,000. No injuries were reported.

"Three people were attacked and at least two others were arrested. The people assaulted were part of the Minutemen demonstration, a group in favor of Arizona's new immigration law. They said a large group of immigrants' rights supporters followed them to the BART station on Market Street and started punching and kicking them, and calling them names. ... Those arrested will likely be charged with felony assault and robbery.

Arson, felony assault and robbery.

Don't worry. No need to worry about the story having legs. You'll never hear about it again because it's just liberals committing violence against conservatives.
