Morning and Shit

I keep hearing calls for a moratorium on off-shore drilling till we find out happened in the Gulf and figure out how not to let it happen again. I think that kind of misses the point. Something will always happen. I'm betting that after hearings and investigations it will be decided that BP fucked up by not spending the extra $500,000 for an emergency shut off valve and they will promise to include the valve in all new oil rigs. Problem solved, until the next one comes along. And there will be a next.

Hell, even Britt Hume is saying maybe the environmentalists have a point. Gee, ya think?
