    Are these people going to stand there for a year, a month, a week, a day, a few hours? Wouldn’t it be advantageous for them to congregate where the oil is washing up NOW and help clean that area (as a protest, of course)?

    One problem with that, Tom, is they’d have to travel a long way to get there, and to burn a lot of oil to do so.
