Amen, I couldn't agree more. Only addition is that this happened in Federal waters under Federal control. Should throw some of the Washington bureauocrats who failed to do their jobs in jail along with the BP guys.
Again, I emphasize that the Feds just are not giving this the attention that is needed. This is a catastrophe that is getting worse by the day. The relief wells will not be completed until August at best. By then we may have another 60 million gallons of oil floating out there. The oil industry is best at shutting in this well, but where is the Federal cleanup response?? This oil isn't going anywhere with Presidential visits and subsidy payments. We are 6 weeks into this and no serious cleanup plan has been put into action. It is going to take years, similar to Alaska, to cleanup this mess.
