    I saw a great blurb with Kevin Costner on CNN, promoting a seemingly great technology for removing the oil from the gulf waters and now nothing. Can you tell us (me) if this was just a promotional sales pitch or if and when BP or the US Government may actually try and utilize it to see if it works. Anything that will help or slow the destruction of the Gulf, with all of the fishing industries now destroyed would be good news in the aftermath of this disaster.
    Thank you,

    This is a great project. The men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice so the rest of us can live in freedom deserve the highest respect and honor we can give them. This type of segment is why I watch your show in the morning. Keep up the good work.....and I'll keep watching.
