  With all that is going on today, is it too hard for some to consider or remember how passionate we all were during the BP / Gulf of Mexico disaster.  Well, while it has fallen off the front page, there are constant reminder's that law suits are ongoing.  
    But thanks to a small enterprise that is followed by few and sometimes is willing to go off the rails a tad, I can only say that BP woes are continuing.   Here is a link to a recent post.   Perhaps someone with more expertise can add more than I and that I would be eternally grateful for the help.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    into the diary. It is too short to recommend.
    Like:

    n a bombshell federal court filing, U.S. government lawyers are slamming British Petroleum for making false and misleading statements that seek to both dodge blame for 2010′s Deepwater Horizon catastrophe and ignore the ongoing environmental devastation, from diseased dolphins to destroyed wetlands.
    The papers filed late last week by the U.S. Justice Department’s top environmental lawyers and New Orleans U.S. Attorney Jim Letten charge that BP’s effort to show the fairness of a proposed $7.8 billion settlement with thousands of Gulf Coast residents and businesses harmed by the spill is instead larded with falsehoods.
    Then you could make some comments about it like 'we are all shocked that BP would lie just to avoid millions in civil claims'.

    copy and paste three paragraphs or so according to Fair Use standards ("or so" if it's a lonnnng article).
    Just copy and paste into the body of the diary, then highlight the whole quote and hit "blockquote". Ta-da!

    Thanks for the link, anyway!
    Wonder what took the Feds so long to catch on...or to admit that the damage is critical and long-term.
