    A beginning. Hope they can follow up and stop this thing before the hurricane season.

    Me too because hurricanes cause much less damage than oil spills.

    My fingers are so crossed. This has been a tragedy and will be for a long time...We must continue to drill there, though, but with new safequards and standards in place.

    It is not a total solution, but it is a start. Anything that keeps the crude oil and natural gas from belching into the virgin waters of the Gulf is a good thing. Let's hope that more success is in the future. It appears from most accounts that we have dodged a HUGE bullet here. Time will tell for sure just how much damage has been done.

    At least it's a start... More success to come, I hope.
