    Easier said than done. You do realize that the pressure of the hydrocarbons coming out of that well is thousands of pounds per square inch, don't you?

    ....but Obama said to "just plug the damn hole." Certainly if his Holiness says it is that easy, thy will must be done.

    Now it's time they used my plan.

    Plug the hole with BP Executives.

    Oh, my.

    It looks like I may spend my vacation cleaning tar off the beach, rather than lounging on it as planned.

    You make it sound like plugging a hole 5000 feet below the surface with liquid coming out at tremendous pressure a simple matter....
