Suwin Chan writes from Westerly, Rhode Island:
On a recent show, Rachel described how booms don't work so well in trapping spilled oil. Please let her know that booms do work perfectly well... you just have to use them for the right purpose![Saturday] they worked perfectly in trapping 20,000 rubber duckies swimming down the Pawcatuck River during the 14th annual duck race in Westerly, RI.
The race benefits the schools and local nonprofits, who get $2.85 for each duck they sell.
