Sun Asks: Is the price of affordable fuel drilling off Virginia's shores?

The Baltimore Sun's website has a good place to stay current about environmental issues around the Chesapeake Bay -- appropriately enough it's called Bay & Environment. Two days ago, they launched a companion blog -- this is another you'll want to add to your RSS feeds.
