    As I told Lusty above, I stopped following it intently because it's too damn depressing. Every time I come back to see what's going on, there's something completely different being performed. You lose track after a while...

      Huff Post has the live feed from PBS up on the front page.  There's a robot hand reaching for, I the area just below where the pipe's been cut.  It keeps floating toward and away from it, and opening and closing its hand, but hasn't grabbed anything yet (probably a frustrated, stressed out engineer on the other end).  Sometimes I wish there were a voice-over to tell us what the robot is trying to do.

      HA!  There's a big, yellow box that says "CUT" near where the pipe was cut. Was that in case the robot forgot what it was supposed to do earlier?

      has been a ton of action. It has been hard to follow. I had to read two liveblogs to catch up just from about six hours of sleep and a couple hours of errands. don't worry, things have been tense down there, as you well know. So have gotten here for the worst of it.

      I wanted to also say, I'm glad you are here this evening.  I enjoyed your comments the other night.
