Black rain in Louisiana

| »

A very, very bad omen in the darkly-ironically-named Pelican State:

And you thought acid rain was a bad thing …

Update: (06/23/10 3:43 PM) – Okay, so I spent a few more moments thinking about this, and it occurred to me … does oil – perhaps not the thick gooey stuff, but the light type that usually forms a thin film on the water’s surface – even evaporate? IANAC (I am not a chemist), so I have no idea. If not, then it seems that these might be something more innocent at work. But it is suspicious for the time being.
