7:15AM  Tomorrow marks 1 month since the Deepwater Horizon exploded – what's taken so long to plug the pipe and stop the spill? We'll ask Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar.

    BP should have had a plan to cap the pipe for good, rather than try to salvage what little they have been able to suck up, before it hit the coast line.


    Didn't any of them see John Wayne in Hellfighters? Couldn't they use an inert torpedo with only the momentum of it's engine to do a controlled shoot into the pipe to plug it up?

    Comment by Jim Acosta and the Purdue expert, was that BP may not want us to know how many gallons of crude were being dumped, because if we didn't know, maybe we wouldn't get so up in arms!! Also that if we didn't know the actual size we might think it's something we don't need to solve right!! Are we all stupid? Whether it's 5K or 50K barrels we know it's massive, it's sickening. The devastation to the economy and the evironment MUST be stopped. Also, regulation and oversite of oil rigs must be increased.
