The Coast Guard is reporting that oil slick from the massive and ongoing BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has washed ashore on islands not far off the coast of Louisiana. So far, the pollution from the spill that's reached American shores is "largely just sheen, there is no evidence of medium or heavy oil," says a spokeswoman. "This is the first confirmation that Unified Command has received of oil on a shoreline," Connie Terrell explained. "We have teams that have confirmed oil on the beach, at the south end of the Chandeleur Islands, at Freemason Island." Never heard of it? You can find it by looking on the invisible map on the back of the Declaration of Independence. [Sky News]
