BP tar balls on a Texas beach?

Five tar balls the size of ping pong balls were located on a beach in Texas, and the Texas news media went into hysterics. Right away those tar balls were blamed on the BP gulf oil spill.

Admits the hysteria it was forgotten that the ocean floor naturally emits tar balls. In the first half of the 16th century (1500s) Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto came across tar balls on a Texas beach. Was there a BP oil spill five hundred years ago?

Hernando de Soto did not go into hysterics when he came across the tar balls. He used the tar balls to caulk leaks in his vessel.
