BP was drilling in a mine field

I am releasing today's lead article from Planet Waves Astrology News to the public.
It's called Tales from Topographic Oceans, and it deals with how BP was drilling for oil in the midst of dumping grounds for unexploded ordnance: old bombs from forgotten wars. We've been developing this article all week -- and these are our findings.
In the article, I describe how we figured this out and fleshed out the additional facts, while on the way to casting the chart for the incident (which is covered in the article as well). Instead of using a shore point, I was searching maps for the latitude and longitude out in the Gulf, which we finally located using a government database.
If I may ask your help with this: please send this article to as many people as you can. You can send this blog, or the direct URL:

If you post it to your blog, please add a short synopsis. While understanding one potential cause of this event will not stop the flow of oil into the Gulf, it may well prevent a similar disaster in the future, since basically the entire Gulf of Mexico is potentially an ordnance dump. The original documents are contained in the article.
