The disaster in the Gulf just gets more and more ridiculous every day.
The president of BP decides he needs a break and decides to go yachting. And now Larry King is hosting a telethon for clean up efforts.
The Nature Conservatory has set up a fund for cleaning up the mess. I'm sure their intentions are good, and I don't begrudge them that at all. The thing is, why are donations being solicited by anyone in the first place?
BP is 100% liable for this mess and they should be the responsible party for cleaning up 100% of the mess. They are a multi-billion dollar corporation whose negligent actions led to this in the first place. I'm sure they have insurance in place to cover this, however, it is evident that their first priority is to their stockholders, not those directly affected by their mistakes.
T. Boone Pickens is making more sense every day.
