Enough oil has spilled in the Gulf of Mexico to spread all over the world's oceans. I'm sure the profit-horrified By-Product (BP) company that bears the ultimate responsibility for this catastrophic envirogeddon could easily burn off all that brown scum with the help of the U.S. Military and a handy-dandy ballistic missile. Why not torch all that messy goo and leave it to the atmosphere to absorb? Hey, just plant a couple trillion trees. That might even be overkill.
I'll tell you who's breathing a sigh of relief: Exxon. Their Exxon Valdez monstrosity won't be able to hold a candle to this spill once it's over, IF it's ever over. Gotta feel good for them. And, there;s was just one drunk captain who unfortunately got a case of "The Titanics" and steered his boat into Oil-Spill Hell. At least it wasn't from a mile down under the ocean. BP's is like a ruptured big-city sewer line with the pressure of a few thousand fire hoses pushing the crude into watery oblivion till further notice.
I think it could be time for an oil industry group prayer. That's about their only hope thus far. C'mon boys, put those hands together, drop to a knee and beg the Big Oil Profit God to cut you a break. It might work. Probably about as well as your other efforts. Go on, give it a try. What the hay?
Here's another person I know must be smiling from above: Jed Clampett. Talk about "a' bubb-a-lin' crude!"
