7. I'm So Damn Cynical...
I don't trust a word not only BP says but Thad Allen as well. We've been around this block too many times. I'm still holding out that the new wells being drilled will relieve the pressure and slow down the gusher, but I'm all but convinced we won't have a 100% solution here...just a slowing down of the destruction...this oil and mess will remain for a long time and its affects haven't even been calculated yet. I'm also suspect that there are other rigs out there that are also spewing oil, undetected, into the gulf...if BP was so slipshod on this rig is this the rule rather than the exception?

The real crime here is these "brains" took the chances in the first place (thanks to a corrupt EPA and MMS) without a proven means to contain or cap a runaway hole. The addiction to oil and cars is so profound in this country wishes become "fact".
