Oil being pushed ashore by Hurricane Alex off the Texas coastline

Hurricane Alex hovers off the coast of Texas and threatens to escalate and spread the oil from the BP underground volcano; we’ll have reports from Venice, Louisiana at the coast, and from the Florida panhandle, where a number of beaches have already been closed down; also, we’ll have a report back from the International Indigenous Women’s Symposium on Reproductive Health; and we’ll have our regular weekly segment of Community Business with Catherine Austin-Fitts.
