    That's like saying heroin is safe to use as long as you don't use it.

    How is that anything like what Gill said?

    It's extremely windy in Texas today as strong gulf winds are hitting the southern states.

    Now, this slick might hit land today.

    Obama said: It turns out, by the way, that oil rigs today generally don’t cause spills. They are technologically very advanced.

    Gill said: For once he was speaking the truth. The automatic shut-off valve on this one didn't work as it was supposed to.

    So they are safe because technology is very advanced but that technology failed making it unsafe.

    Or the Space Shuttle.

    I guess if we were to shut down everything that has ever caused harm in our society, this would be a perfect world..... And NJL would be a happy camper.

    You're quite welcome.

    As you get older you'll learn that most of the things you see in the media are much to do about nothing.

    Louisiana is about to look like Washington D.C. after Obama's inaugural address.
