Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

As we reported yesterday, resident MoJo badass (and human rights reporter) Mac McClelland is down in Louisiana covering the BP oil fiasco as it washes up on shore. Today she’s back at Grand Isle beach, where there are dolphins, yelling cops, and huge pools of oil. Right now she’s headed to the new ‘BP Information Center’ to ask why cops are trying to block reporters. Barring arrest, she’ll be live-Tweeting from the scene. Follow her coverage below (takes a sec to load), or follow her on Twitter here.
