British Petroleum may have a plan to cap their leaking oil well. Let's hope they're not using their latest contractor, Halliburton. Otherwise, we can expect a lot of electrocuted scuba divers. And to go three trillion bucks in debt without getting a damn thing accomplished.
But if a giant dome doesn't work, don't worry. I'm sure the oil industry has a Plan B, a Plan C, a Plan D...and a dozen Plan Fs.
Personally, I think this was the Brits' way of getting back at us for all this tea party nonsense. That was really rubbing salt in a very old wound. They never really forgave us for that nasty breakup in 1776. Oh, sure, they pretended they weren't mad anymore. They let us save their asses in WW2, and sent us the Beatles and James Bond, but all along, they were waiting for the chance to dump something in our harbor.
The slick bastards.
