Sounds to me like the "culprit" may still be embedded in your tire. If you cannot find anything still stuck in your tire, you may want to take a look and see how worn your tire is. I know when I get two flats in a relatively short period of time, it's generally been my tire telling me that it's worn out.

Has anyone ever posted a review on the "slime tubes"? I'd be curious how well they work.

Another option is to go for a tire that resists flats. We make some, as do all the major tire companies. I like to think that ours is best, but many here will make arguments that the one they like is not ours. Our most puncture resistant tire will never be mistaken for a racing tire, but you're not likely to get a flat, which for commuting is sometimes more important than speed.
