The Gulf Monster

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should. ~ Dr. Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park
I guess I'm supposed to feel good that someone had the guts to tell BP to stop and prove what they want to do (pressure test their latest experiment) won't make things worse. But after so many months of failures, after so many months of lies, empty promises, and cover ups, I'm immune to feeling good about the Gulf of Mexico disaster. I wouldn't believe them if they announced that the spill will be contained by Monday. Oh, wait, they did that last week.

They could stop the flow of oil tomorrow (Right, like that'll happen.) and it won't kill the monster. The horror that British Petroleum unleashed will continuing killing, fish and humans, for decades to come.
