"Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the Obama administration's point man on the spill, said Friday that federal, state and local governments, working with BP, had a "very robust hurricane contingency plan."
Let's hope that it's more "robust" than the blowout contingency plans (which pretty much consisted of crossing the fingers of their left hands and pointing in blame with their right).
"Meanwhile, a 2009 financial disclosure form was released Friday for New Orleans federal judge Martin L.C. Feldman, who issued an injunction earlier in the week halting the Obama administration's six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling in the gulf. Feldman owned shares in at least 17 oil and gas companies last year, including an unspecified interest in Transocean Ltd., the owner of the rig that exploded in the April 20 accident."
Of course. Why would we expect anything else? I can just imagine the screenwriters tapping frantically at their keyboards - "Oil, Lies and Videotape" coming soon to a theatre near you.
