They should have told BP that they will oversee the clean up and containment and send BP the bill.
And what of the thousands of people who's livelihood is taking a hit currently because of the spill? Sorry, as someone studying fisheries management, the whole oil spill thing really gets my goat. I'm watching my dream job fade into an iridescent black muck.

I would like to know what happened to all of the National Guard reserves that we supposedly had. Certainly they can't ALL be in Iraq right now. USA disaster relief = ****...across the board.

Another thing that surprises me is that BP hasn't been as gung ho in fixing the problem as I would have expected. I figure every gallon of oil that flows out of that hole is money lost for them. At the very least plug the damn hole!
