It's a Thanksgiving miracle! Or maybe it's just an unpleasant Thanksgiving mystery. Investigators are still trying to figure out what the hell caused the 100-by-30-foot “slick” to appear on the bay south of SFO last night. The “oily mass” determined, oddly enough, not to be oil, was surrounded with an absorbent boom — whatever that means — and officials will be on the case today. Let's hope it's just the remains of a giant, capsized Thanksgiving gravy boat.
