So the leak was detected at 4:30 only when a sheen was seen.
No sensors detecting and anomaly, alarm sounds off, Scotty complaining about a warp core breach?
Not very encouraging.
Sounds like they got lucky with favorable wind and temps rather than getting a handle on the situation from the start.
And whats with heavy and light oil getting into a SEALED cooling system?

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything.

Looks like they're being policed just fine.Both the EPA and the U.S. Coast Guard have been overseeing the clean up efforts. They say that most of the affected shoreline, about 2,700 yards, has already been cleaned up, but a more comprehensive assessment is scheduled for Wednesday.
Ordinarily, an oil spill wouldn't garner much of my attention, except this spill in Lake Michigan is where many people who live in states along the shorelines receive their drinking water from. I pointed out how careless BP has been in the past, and evidently, they're carrying on their tradition of spoiling once again.
Yeah, they'll probably pay another fine, but what does that do for people who are victims to their carelessness?
