I think that little cough must just be a nervous habit. If you listen to some of the older shows like Sag Harbor/East Hampton/Lulu's you will hear him clear his throat a lot. He's probably not even aware that he does it.

I just don't understand why they can't cap the oil rig. If it were in Iraq I bet it would be capped by now.....
This may be a reason they are not capping the leak at this point. If they cap the rig these fissures will open up and gulf could fill with oil. I'm no expert and I am not making excusses for BP and the Government but I think theres a lot more at risk here then we are seeing on the news.

"Another factor that would contribute to positive signs of a large methane gas reservoir would be cracks or fissures appearing on the ocean bed near the capped well opening. The appearance of these cracks is now becoming evident from footage sent up by the underwater robots working on the damaged well.

Fissures of gas eruptions entering the ocean are also being reported further along the outer radius of the drill site. Scientists are still crunching the numbers on the data they have collected over the recently completed 10 day research expedition. More available facts should come to light within the week"

So, I watched my DVR'd interview from the other night and Cooper mentioned at the end that there would be more tomorrow (Friday) and Monday. Did anyone watch (or record) it on Friday? Was it a replay or more of the interview? And what will Monday be?

He said that he was a little hoarse from the LuLu show during the interview. It was noticeable.

I enjoyed watching Jimmy on AC360 Thursday night. I thought what Buffett said about dispersants was interesting, namely, that there are scientists who think it's better to allow the oil to wash ashore so that it can be cleaned up. No one is sure about the damage dispersants do, so that is a concern. Buffett also pointed out that we get a very small amount of oil from deep-ocean drilling, another reason, in my opinion, why we shouldn't be drilling for oil in the oceans of our world. And, lastly, Buffett suggested that the ultimate answer might be found in alternative energy sources. In my opinion, we have failed to provide entrepreneurs with sufficient financial incentives to develop clean forms of energy. I hope that this human-made disaster will be an impetus for that to happen.

Friday's interview was a replay of the second segment of Thursday's show. I thought it would be something different, although Jimmy seemed to say what he wanted to say in the segments that aired Thursday.

Linda, I've noticed Jimmy doing that little cough a LOT lately on all the ustream things.
:-? :-? Hope it's just that he needs some water!!!!

NICE JOB, JIMMY!!!!
Loved the interview. We're so proud of JB!!

As for the cough, we're think ing it is probably the weather/allergies. We didn't noticed it at the concerts. Have you??

It seems like I've seen Jimmy do that a bit since we've been able to see the shows on ustream.

Jimmy's on again now. Comments about shoveling manure jobs changing to fixing flat tires in reference to jobs disappearing. :D

From those previews, it looks like it is a new third segment of the interview...

Yes, SunLover...different stuff.

Jimmy mentioned an app called MoGo for iphones to report wildlife and tarballs, etc. He pulled out his iphone to show the app on his phone. :D

Here is the app at the savegulfwildlife.com

http://www.savegulfwildlife.org/

MoGO is a free iPhone™ app that turns you and your iPhone™ into a ‘citizen scientist’ helping wildlife experts find and rescue oiled birds, sea turtles, and dolphins. The MoGO app allows you to take and submit photos of oiled, injured, and dead marine and coastal wildlife; tar balls on beaches; oil slicks on water; and oiled coastal habitats.

Sadly, it did seem like Jimmy was telling the fishers and shrimpers to find new jobs... (regardless if it was caused by the resource "extractors").

Jimmy also reported that although lots of news got out about the S. W. A. T. boats being taken out of the water, that they found out reasons and worked things out and they are back working again. Was that news reported anywhere. I just saw the news that BP halted their work.

I didn't hear that they were back up and running either. But then again, wasn't cnn the only place to report that they were shut down. Regardless glad to hear that they are back in the water.

Although off topic, here's a follow-up story about the S.W.A.T. boat that Jimmy donated to help with the oil clean-up. It says it will be in the water the week of July 19 in the Bon Secour area under the direction of the U.S. Fish Wildlife Service.

The vessel was given to the Friends of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, a non-profit organization that supports Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is located in coastal Alabama and is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
...
The boat is scheduled to begin wildlife recovery operations during the week of July 19.

Greg Vergari, wildlife recovery operations coordinator, will be selecting a two-person crew trained for the safe recovery of injured wildlife. The crew will follow standard wildlife rescue protocol, which quickly transports recovered animals to nearby treatment centers.

The S.W.A.T boat will be added to the fleet of 14 wildlife recovery boats, and it will work initially around our local national wildlife refuges," stated Vergari. "The crew can inspect habitat conditions for oil contamination while they search for injured wildlife."
