    Their stock has lost 61 million in value so far and hurricane season is just about here.
    I can see it already, "Oklahoma reports oil slick in corn belt after storm."
    At $4300 fine per barrel, is that going to cover it? BP stock is going to lose a whole lot more before this is over.

    Won't be very long before they won't have to have drilling platforms, just toss a pipe into the Gulf of Mexico and suck it out. We all may have just created the world's largest 'tarpit'.

    It could spawn a whole new tourist attraction.
