Rachel Maddow talked to Mike Blum of Tulane University about how the booms being used to contain, or rather not contain, the oil in the Gulf and keep it off of the Louisiana shoreline and out of the marshes are not working. As Rachel notes, you don't have to know anything about booming to know that what's been put out has been done incorrectly and is pretty well useless.

For anyone that didn't catch this a few weeks ago, Fishgrease at Daily KOS wrote a diary on what a proper f**king boom looks like and it's not safe for work. What Rachel just showed in the clip above looks like what Fishgrease describes as f**king useless. Diary here Fishgrease: DKos Booming School and it's been made into a video at You Tube which is also not safe for work, so don't hit the play button on the video below if it's going to get you in trouble.
