    Re: BP says new cap has stopped flow of oil into the Gulf

    Certainly good news.

    Will be interesting to see if this warrants a Presidential news conference in the next few days. The White House took an amount of political grief over this spill (mostly undeserved i'd say) Would suspect they would like have their name associated to the "good news" now after spending 10 weeks being linked to the bad.



    (just having a passing political thought here. I'll be quiet now.....)

    Right. It was just a trickle. It ruined vacation sales in Florida. It put tens of thousands out of work. Its going to cost tens of billions of dollars.

    I thought the new cap had a leak.

    This is good news. Now, how many billion gallons of oil do we need to clean up from the gulf?

    I think some enterprising engineer at BP should come up with a way to drill the surface of the Gulf. I bet he'd end up a millionaire.

    I was kinda hoping that BP's ginourmous oil slicks get caught in the gulf stream then shoot it northeast across the atlantic and on to Britian's coast.

    Why would anyone hope for that? What has Britain done to you?
