Suck it up
Reports the past week from CNN and MSNBC indicate that very little has been done in the Gulf by BP to remove the oil. I suspected removal was delayed because the spill was continuing and they thought they would do the job once instead of continuous mopping.
It seems to me that the action to remove the oil is very late at this stage. The US Environmental Protection Agency, Department of the Interior, and Department of Homeland Security should be mopping like crazy at this point, sending the bill to BP.
President Obama is apparently still trying to locate the buckets and the mops as the sucking up operation is not apparent.
