I wish they'd stop comparing the size of the Gulf Coast oil spill to different US territories. First it was the size of Rhode Island, then Delaware, then New Jersey, then Puerto Rico. But I went to public school, so I don't know what any of that means. Puerto Rico is bigger than New Jersey? News to me. Also, what's a Delaware? Can't we get a more useful metric? Like if you told me the spill has grown from 1000 Costcos to 80 Disney Worlds then I'd know exactly what you mean.
