      are the main names for well service on deepwater drilling, I believe.  The list of qualified contractors with sufficient insurance coverage is probably pretty short.  

      Sometimes it's better to individually address a problem rather than just criticize our politicians for failing to do so.

        and so why is everyone so afraid of this guy?

        Seriously, if we cannot depend on our current government to root this evil out and do what really needs to be done with it, our nation is lost.
