Aww man, not again!!
Daryl Hannah was arrested today after protesting against the construction of an extremely controversial oil pipeline in Washington D.C., and even though she was sent to jail, she was not even trippin'. LOLz
The eco-activist and actress joined demonstrators from 350.org, Sierra Club and Committed Citizens to take part in the protest against the Keystone XL project that was aimed at getting our prez, Barack Obama, to hopefully forfeit building the pipeline.

Whoa! She's the last person from which we'd expect this!
62-year-old Margot Kidder was arrested in Washington D.C. yesterday during a rally outside the White House to protest the TransCanada Corp.'s Keystone XL pipeline scheme!
The campaigners were reportedly trying to convince Barack Obama to nix the $7 billion project to relocate oil from Alberta to the Gulf Coast, which has already been approved by Canadian officials!

This morning, Nick Jonas and his bros were in Florida lending a helping hand to St Petersburg as part of the Disney's Friends for Change: Project Green Gulf Coast Clean Up.
What a good guy he is! And he looks outstanding while doing so!

Around noon today, oil production platform 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana exploded!
Thankfully, the thirteen people who were aboard the platform were accounted for and rescued from the site. No cause for the explosion has been identified yet, but Mariner Energy, the owners of the production platform, released a statement saying that "no hydrocarbon spill has been reported after an initial flyover of the incident."
The incident is still under close investigation.
Hasn't the poor Gulf suffered enough?!

Jay Leno will be doing stand-up on Saturday to benefit Gulf Coast residents affected by the oil spill.
He'll be appearing at The Beau Rivage Theater in Biloxi, Miss., billed as Stand-Up for the Gulf Coast: A Special Evening with Jay Leno to Benefit the Gulf Coast Community Foundation. All proceeds will go to the Gulf Coast community.
Tickets for the benefit $40, $80 and $150 each and will be administered by the foundation through its Mississippi Oil Spill Recovery Fund.
Way to go, Jay!
