    Is it even possible to drop, say, a super-sized concrete "cork" over the well w/out oil recapture? The govm't has put 100% reliance on the "word" of BP..which has been the problem all along.
    Without any sort of "checks and balance" to properly evaluate and therefore regulate, the oil industry has been writing their own operational scripts. Todays WSJ
    (6/1/10) includes the story of how prior to the blow-out BP modified their drilling plans at least 3 times which included using a "cost effective" single drill pipe.(normal ops uses double pipes) All the modifications were o.k'd promptly-were safety issues even raised by the "regulators"?

    Lets "cork it up NOW"
