    One of the many things that bothers me about this is the whole shift the blame game that BP is playing. Get the freakin' leak stopped, take care of the families of those that died then worry about the blame.

    Well, it's time for the corporate blame game. BP might get hit hardest at the pump if people get mad enough! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. This is nothing short of insanity! First the Great Barrier Reef and now the Gulf of Mexico and who knows where that mess will ultimately end up. If it comes to the east coast of Florida I'll be sick.

    What I edited out was over the top. You knew that when you typed it. We like to allow people to express their opinions....but there are limits. Curt

    i know it makes me so mad worried about who is at fault befor worring about trying anything to stop it
    if the leak was on dry land they could use tnt to close off the spill maybe somthing better would do the trick anything is less harmfull than a so far 400 million gallons of crude oil

    the worst Part i think is i was listenening to NPR and they said the back-up safety panel had a dead battery... and one of the relief valves that may have stopped the explosion in the first place was "modified" to work! this is going to be insane when it reaches the gulf stream!
