Cleaning Up After The Oil Spill

Workers scrub crude oil from their boots Monday in the Northwoods subdivision where an ExxonMobil pipeline ruptured in Mayflower, Ark. ExxonMobil continued efforts to clean up thousands of barrels of heavy Canadian crude oil spilled from the nearly 65-year-old pipeline, as a debate raged about the safety of transporting rising volumes of the fuel into the United States.REUTERS/Suzi Parker
