    Defending BP

    Do you think Government has more motivation and knows more about stopping the leak than BP? They are on the hook for the cost, lawsuits, and publicity. They, being the shareholders, have already lost 25% of their entire investment--$50 billion. Not only that, BP was not even doing the drilling. The fault was with a defective part and that is life. Defective parts get into cars, pacemakers and oil rigs. This reminds us of Three Mile Island 25 years ago. Michael Douglas and Jane Fonda with gifts from many donors portrayed the nuclear industry as dangerous in China Syndrome. If we were reasoned at that time, instead of reactionary, like some of your guests, we would be sitting with a 70% nuclear country, no pollution, no global warming, and no oil spills.

    Go to BP and buy some gas.
