Don't eat the shrimp

Washington's blog has really been on the British Petroleum case:

Gulf Shrimpers Find Oil In Reopened Fishing Areas. Governnment Says "Shut Up". Sierra Club Alleges Areas Were Solely Reopened to Limit BP's Liability

The Government Lies to the American People About the Safety of Gulf Seafood

None of this comes to any surprise to me. When the shrimpers themselves are saying, "look, you don't actually expect us to sell this stuff for human consumption, do you???" you know there's something terribly wrong with the shrimp, and if BP could get NOAA and the Coast Guard to cover their ass, they can get the FDA to do the same thing.
