So I get that it is named after an oil spill in Santa Barbara, but why in the world would it be? What I mean is... neither the words "Ace" and "King" nor the letters "A" and "K" seem to have any relation to the events in Santa Barbara, which is in California, not Alaska.I would think it would be named after the Exxon spill, which was in Alaska, postal abbreviation AK.

Except that the term 'big slick' has been around far before the Exxon-Valdez spill in Alaska. As for why Santa Barbara? Not sure... I can't find anything to attribute that to in the RGP archives.Patrick

Good call, but super sytems way predates that spill. Was their a previous spill up there, maybe?
