Too sad. BTW, it's not a "spill" as in I spilled a little oil. It's a gusher. Thanks Cal.

Uups, I spilled my glass of water.

It's like after Hurricane Katrina. It's no longer front page news and both the politicians and bureaucrats figure to let any excitement simmer down. Meanwhile, there needs to be much more done in the aftermath of the storm. Hopefully, we can't let the furor dwindle down regarding the spill. We have to keep reminding the politicians to do their job. Many of their pockets are already bloated with oil money. I always worked in private enterprise and surely would not have gotten away with what they are doing. If I took money from a competitor, I would have been deservedly out on the street.
