The oil leak hole is plugged? What, is every golf course closed today or something?
Brad Plumer is astounded by this little tidbit:

David Waldman cheekily starts a conspiracy:
Why isn't Obama starting the oil leak again so he can stop it?
Finally, Jonathan Cox is keeping emotions in check.
NEWS: BP has stopped the oil leak. In a related story, BP has legally changed the definition of the word "leak".
Bonus: a low-blow Inception preview (sorry, England).
Inception is about a small group of highly trained individuals that are sent to destroy peoples dreams. Like the England football team.
