No oil appeared to be leaking  Friday after a drilling rig exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico, the Coast Guard said. Officials are trying to contain what spilled from the blast and prevent any threat to the coast’s wildlife and plants.  A  crude oil slick 40 miles wide and 80 miles long is sitting atop deep water in the Gulf.  The Coast Guard said it is about 50 miles south of Louisianna and headed east. Environmentalists say if it comes ashore it will be a disaster.

James Call reports one Tallahassean’s response to the oil spill was to stage a one-man folk singer protest in support of a ban prohibiting oil and gas drilling off of Florida’s coast.
