    This volcano of oil is endangering the oceans. It could change the Gulf Stream. Already the waters of the Gulf are getting colder.

    Ideally a leader, facing this catastropne, should take all necessary moves to protect any of the existing operating rigs from future accidents. Make regulations that all rigs must have plans for prevention of accidents of this nature as well as plans for how to handle them if they do occur.

    Then, reform the governing agencies like Dept of Interior and MMS and make them enforce the new safety codes. Big fines would be imposed for any lapses.

    After that, declare that there will be no more exploratory drilling.

    Yesterday the administration repeated "we were on this from day one" 19 times - they are on the defensive. If they were "on it from day one," we didn't hear about it. Where were the public announcements and the president's statement on April 22, day one?

    This above all: to thine own self be true...-WS
