    BP is just one oil company among many tycoons out there. The financial damage to them is "relatively tiny" when compared to the entire global oil industry

    Sorry if I misinterpreted, but it sure seemed to be what you were saying. Could you expand on it so that it might be clearer?

    BP, poster child for galactically ignorant and selfish. Comments like that only expose their arrogant attitude that they can do what they want and get away with what they want. Hopefully, those days are gone.

    Oh - so it's ok, now! Since the ocean is just SO HUGE it's ok.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I didn't mean to excuse it. I was pointing out that they HAD done some things that actually looked good, but I did not mean to imply that it did anything to even remotely compensate for THIS.

    Could be risky. Damage claims haven't even started rolling in yet and the scope of the disaster is still unknown. I do believe BP stock is still on it's way down but, we shall see.

    The funny thing about corporate capitalism is that there are caps on damage awards for these environmental disasters.
