BP seeks yet another way to stop oil leak as protests loom
(CNN) – BP seemed to be getting criticism from every angle as the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico entered its 45th day Thursday and every effort to stop the historic flow is still failing.
As the oil company was getting increased scrutiny from Congress and the president, a grassroots campaign dubbed Seize BP planned demonstrations in more than 50 cities to start Thursday.
"From Florida to Seattle, Washington, from Hawaii to New York, all over California and many, many states across the country, people will be taking to the streets over the next week to demand that the assets of BP be seized now," said Richard Becker, a member of the San Francisco chapter of the group. "We know millions of people are deeply concerned about what's going on in the Gulf right now and we expect large numbers of people to come out to the protests."

Ump's call robs pitcher of immortality
There have been 21 perfect games in the history of Major League Baseball. Only 20 of them will officially count. There's no other way to say it: Last night in Detroit, Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga got robbed. Galarraga retired 27 consecutive batters, only to have the last out of the game incorrectly ruled safe by umpire Jim Joyce. CNN contributor and HBO Sports analyst Max Kellerman will join us this morning for his analysis.
Sound off: What do you think of the call? Should Commissioner Bud Selig step in and award a perfect game to Galarraga? We want to hear from you this morning. Add your comments to the LIVE Blog below and we'll read some of them on the show.
