Exxom Valdez 11 million gallons. The stock price recovered in 3 months. The company is insured. BTW, estimate is for 4 million gallons so how could it be worse than Exxon Valdez? Maybe because we have 24 hour news. Who is to say that some greenie didn't place a little package on the rig and then blow it up. They ram boats etc.! Now with the Va. gov. wanting to drill and actually getting permission, this would have been a great way of destroying that option for our country. It would be a great way for Obama to say yes to drilling and then keeping his green supporters too. Remember he is from Chicago.
