Among the many things that have been polluted by the Deepwater Horizon oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico has been our Google News Alert for "Mexico," which is now devoted pretty much exclusively to the Louisiana shrimping industry. This sort of thing has happened before - as much as we liked him, no one was happier than us when New Mexico governor Bill Richardson dropped out of the 2008 presidential race. Anyway, this really neat web application helps us carry the metaphor all the way by showing what the slick would look like if had somehow bubbled up in the middle of Querétaro.

Anyone who thinks an oil spill like this couldn't happen here has obviously never seen enchiladas queretanas being prepared.
