    Boat Crashes Into Oil Well, Creating New Spill in Gulf of Mexico

    URGENT: Fox News is being told by the Homeland Security director for Jefferson Parish, La., that a new oil leak has sprung up in the Gulf of Mexico after a boat struck an oil well in the early morning hours on Tuesday.
    I wouldn't worry about this one too much. Yes, oil is gushing from a well into the Gulf of Mexico, but this one is only 8 feet under the surface. It will be stopped pretty quickly, but coming on the heels of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, this does not look good for the PR boys over at BP.

    I saw nothing in your link to indicate this was in any way related to BP..?

    well (excuse the pun) they don't actually know whose well it was, so BP may be able to out a "they did it too" spin on things
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    It's the oil industry as a whole, along with their political shills, who keep telling us that there are no problems with drilling in the Gulf. BP is presently the poster boy for that, hence my reference to them.

    Gotcha, but it seems that this was more human error, and not actually any problem with the drilling equipment/well/etc....

    I mean, airplanes are generally safe, but if a pilot flies one into a mountain, it is not a failure of the plane really.

    Which is why I maintain that their opposition to a moratorium smacks of dishonesty.
