The Cat in the BP Hat Comes Back
In the 1958 book, The Cat In The Hat Comes Back, Dr. Seuss' nettlesome cat makes life hard for Sally and her brothter by leaving a bright pink ring in the tub after taking a bath. The cat's attempts to clean up the ring only cause it to spread to the wall, the bed, a pair of shoes and beyond. Thumbing through the book the other day, we saw parallels to BP, oil and the current situation in the Gulf of Mexico.

Story by Lane DeGregory (with apologies to Dr. Seuss)
