Well BP is finally putting the 4 story cement cap on the oil leak in the Gulf. Apparently it will take a few days to cap the well. The well is 5,000 feet below the surface and they have to use robot subs to put it in place. Hopefully this will stop the oil from coming out of the well. Then there's all the oil on the surface and floating around beneath the surface that has to be cleaned up. An innovative way that us regular people can do to help is by getting a hair cut. Huh??? Well, there is this group in San Francisco that collects hair, stuffs it into tubes of nylon stockings that are then tied together to form a barrier around the slick and then the hair, which is highly absorbant, soaks up the oil. Over 390,000 salons have signed up to send hair to the project and some are giving a discount on a haircut. So if you've been dying to get that new doo now's the time.
