BP is still charging a fee for their gasoline here. I'm surprised - I understand they're giving it away in the gulf.

The mess needs a different name than "spill". Containers falling off ships, that's a spill - and there's been plenty of that in the past. Poking a hole in the ocean floor and letting it bleed seems like so much more than anything we've experienced before.

Live by oil, die by oil.

I, too, have had a hard time with the word 'spill' in this mess, too.

Mess - now that's a good word.
