i'm going to 'save' this comment of yours and 'send' it back to you in 3 months when BP common is over $40/shr. true; it don't seem possible right now because 99% of those who comment think this $50-$75 bln crisis has to paid out in 180 days instead of 12-15 yrs. it 'is' a big deal; but a big deal over the next decade-plus. in the meantime, BP's cash-flow continues to grow. they keep pumping and sell oil.
