“Coast Guard Scoops Up Oil in San Francisco Bay” – Really AP, Really?

The news of the day from the Associated Press: Coast Guard scoops up oil in San Francisco Bay

Except that the smallest branch of the United States military doesn’t actually scoop up spilled oil in San Francisco Bay - there’s a whole industry dedicated to doing that. And if you listen to the Coast Guard, they’ll tell you that, ad nauseum. Oh well.

The Coasties are handling this spill better than that one from the Cosco Busan. Hurray! That’s good practice for The Big Oil Spill in our future:

The Pacific Responder and the Ocean Liberty, along with smaller vessels, are out there right now, between San Francisco and the tip of Alameda Island that’s, oddly enough, also part of the City of San Francisco.

Anyway, the USCG don’t scoop up oil.

And keep up the good work, 11th District. Just try to resist the urge to lie to us for no reason, and you’ll do fine.
