In a world where oil is spreading, one river stands alone.

I had to laugh at this headline on MSNBC:
Mighty Mississippi could fight oil slick - Oil has hit the fragile Gulf coast wetlands. To fight it, the mighty Mississippi River must get even mightier.

Alright. I admit the italics are mine, but still: Don't you read that and automatically speak the words in some heavy, important movie trailer voice? Maybe followed by a training sequence of the Mississippi River getting into shape while "Eye of the Tiger" blares on the soundtrack?
