    Here is a bit of good news...hopefully.

    <Jeff Childs, a deputy incident commander for BP, said in a briefing with Alabama officials that the company successfully shut a set of hydraulic shears known as annular rams, helping to clamp the ruptured pipe and block the leaking oil.>

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Hope that was perfectly clear.

    I feel your pain. And I was feeling it quite soon after the rig sunk as I knew what was coming next. Too bad the first responders didn't just let the rig burn. The weight of the water from the fireboats is said to have caused the rig to sink.

    Well, it's mid-day Monday, and still no oil slick on the coasts. When and where is this supposed to wash ashore again?

    This is one of the most nebulous events in a long time. I've read where there is absolutely no way to tell how much oil is leaking at the ocean floor, yet everybody seems to know. I've read where it's headed for Louisiana, no..Texas, no....Florida. No one knows how or why it exploded, and BP won't take respnsibility.

    This thing is just floating out there with no answers, pardon the pun.

    Let's hope that this is true. However, given BP's previous flawed "estimates," their credibility is VERY questionable.
