Dear Gene, Spill of opportunity! Its comments like this that enrage many folks. 
The marine scientific world would not be missing ANY important data set if this
spill did not take place.

Although I am thinking of you during all of these bleaching alerts, and during
my dose experiments using the crude extracts and other petrol products on reef

PS: all we learn is that corals die quick, and that we need a serious
alternative energy policy yesterday.

* Colin, The health of this species along with the 6 or 7 other
* tropical corals that presently live on many rigs will be an
* interesting study for someone. Lets all hope the gusher ends soon. It
* certainly has been a spill of opportunity for many and a disaster for
* others. Gene
