We, too, were once innocent. Unstaunched quantities of crude oil, and true disasters inwhich the real costs of unchecked corporate greed are laid bare, tend to take their toll.
 
IF I MIGHT,
I need go on the record to express my huge discontent with thecurrent status of the BP Gulf Oil Catastrophe, thirty-three days deep into its black ruin.I have two questions that I’d like answered. My first is addressed to thegovernment of the United States of America.
1
 
 WHY are BP Oil and the others involved still, even now, running theshow?
They have lied, cheated, gambled and played fast and loose with the very environmental soundness of our country. If the culpable parties were being ledaway in handcuffs, I could understand.But for the love of God, must the term “dependence on oil” be followed so blindly? With the damage done by the BP Oil/ Transocean/ Deepwater Horizoncrew already well beyond measure, and the avoidability of the the entire incidentalready well documented, with the use of technology that have been not only available, but
is currently in use
by these same culpable parties in other jurisdictions as required by their laws,how can this incident
not 
be seen as an attack, even if perpetrated recklessly orthrough extreme negligence, upon our domestic health, safety, and well-being?
2
 
BP and the others made a “business choice” here, and they 
either knew or should have known
that, if the problematic situation occurred against which the specificequipment protected,
they would be completely unable to
 begin
to deal with it.
