    and the "small people" actually did offer a solution to a huge problem that the all-powerful BP could not do on its own.  However, a reputable source who lives in Florida said the photo taken by the ROVs showed "Transocean" on the side of the device and believes that there are several of these that existed before the explosion that could have been put in place much earlier.  My question to him was why weren't they used much earlier to save the Gulf from all this mess?  His reply is that now the Gulf is a virtual dead zone - so the oil companies may as well "drill, baby, drill."  I can't believe they'd just purposefully destroy a whole ecosystem, but he said paying for the damages is less than one year's profits for BP.  Would corporations be that callus?
