Still, I'd urge caution before jumping to conclusions.  The pictures 
don't tell you anything about contamination.  In fact, they look to me 
no different than hundreds of others I've seen of the Gulf of Mexico 
continental slope seabed.  When you disturb the upper layer of mud, you 
see a different color mud beneath.  I'd much prefer some Dr. Joye's data 
proving there is oil on the surface.
