Nice that the feed is and hour delayed so if anything comes up that they don't want you to see they have time to add "snow".

How did you figure it was an hour old? The video I see shows 14:40 central time at 15:40 eastern time which is correct.

nolatom will become famous soon enough
I care little about all the out-of-state punditry.

What I do hope is that the top-kill procedure works. We desperately need a break on this thing, at long last..

I rarely post but IMHO this disaster is to Barack Obama what Katrina was to George W. The current administration is asleep at the helm.

Why isn't the United Sates Navy on the scene?

Allowing BP to run the cleanup and control the flow of information is like letting a murderer run their own murder investigation.

Lunacy!

anyone have an Idea how much more sail area we would need to sail in dark gooey,stickey,latex paint type oil???
Less sail area. Probably a storm sail situation due to global cooling making stronger wind gusts. all the heat in oceans will go to the atmosphere warming it up then creating bigger pressure differentials between land and see.
Sailing will be like riding a surf board..

That is the question we have been asking since day 1 here on the gulf coast..

amazing thing is the Coast Guard falls under the department of homeland security....yet all they seem to be used for is to keep the press away from what is happening out there....

Imagine that a forign privately owned oil Company in charge of our homeland securities military arm......

Lunacy...you bet!...question is How can this happen??

HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN?

Just sit back and enjoy the ride. It's about to get a lot more interesting. Did they close the leak yet? I can't see with the live feed.

I said it before Obama is a racist. He hates Americans!
