    Let's hope that the fact that it was inactive and not producing will result in little or no environmental damage. Just one injury and all accounted for is good news.

    Just waiting for the announcement of no more drilling. The administration has been arguing this for months now.

    Well, it turns out the rig was producing. See kids, this is what happens when you rely on early reports, you wind up with egg on your face.
