Listeners respond: oil cleanup, this week’s agenda

The World

Chris from Tulsa, Okla. called in to say, “I remember a stir about human hair’s ability to absorb many times its own weight in oil. I have never, ever, ever heard any more word about it.” We looked into this, and indeed, there is a way to use hair to create mats that can help soak up the oil. An organization called Matter of Trust is collecting donated hair from salons, groomers, and individuals.

We also hear your responses to the oil leak, and find out what’s on your agenda.
