In a Spearsian like maneuver, looking to trump both the recent storm and the Dhaliwal brothers, oil spill made a comeback this morning. It seems that a crane fell off of a san Francisco pier a little before 10 a.m. this morning, spilling "an unknown amount" of oil into the Bay. According to the Gate, "[t]he crane was on a sliding rail system at a dry dock at Pier 70 when it suddenly tilted to one side and fell into the water."

An unidentified man working on the crane also came tumbling down, but was wasn't seriously injured. He has since been taken to San Francisco General Hospital for observation.

According to CBS 5, the "Coast Guard vessel dispatched about 10 minutes after the incident was reported discovered a sheen stretching for about 100 yards on the water near the scene of the collapse." (Uh oh, seeing the word "sheen" again - and not used in relation to hair volume, shine, or bounce - unnerves us.) California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health will investigate the incident today.
