    Official: Gulf spill could be contained by Monday

    some good news? i hope so.

    Official: Spill could be contained by Monday - Disaster in the Gulf - msnbc.com

    If all goes according to plan, the combination of the cap and the new vessel could collect all the leaking oil by Monday. Work continues on what officials hope will be the ultimate solution: a pair of relief wells intercepting the leaking well far below the seafloor.

    Huzzah!
    Crossing my fingers that this all goes according to plan. Hopefully we can finally put this whole mess behind us.

    Possible good news about the oil spill. That is a nice change.

    Last I heard he wouldn't have the time, the relief well is ahead of schedule by if memory serves correctly a very large margin. This thing is done if it works and last night they were about 200ft off the wellhead. I didn't realize this was the major fix though, I thought it was only phase 1.

    Now why would I do that? I am only highlighting that it may not be quite the right time to let an end come to this thing yet. Not enough damage, or a big enough crisis to make good use of in destroying American energy.

    I mean to say, he couldn't have planned it better to destroy the coastline, demonize oil, and make an entire region dependent on the government.

    Whether it is incompetence, or willing destruction, or a combination of both, he has failed in a big way already. Now all we are left with is the double talk, and the lies.
