BP Oil Leak

The ongoing "oil spill" in the Gulf of Mexico darkens our days. In the beginning, while we were still trying to grasp the enormity of such a thing, i would have put money on BP standing by their promises to stop the leak and clean up the mess...up to the point that it became too expensive and public outrage reached a crescendo. And then the BP company would just die of embarrassment and shame. But really it would just go underground until it restructured itself and came back as a big oil player with a different name. So i'm surprised they are still here. Not only that, but spending big bucks on a new advertising campaign aimed at improving their image. Again.

I offer links to a couple of commentaries on BP and this oil leak: The Onion. And Mark Morford.
