Current Timeline to Shut Down Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: Three Months

Mark Sappenfield, The Christian Science Monitor: "Federal officials gave a sobering appraisal of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill Sunday, with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar saying 'ultimate relief' was 90 days away. Federal officials speaking about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill Sunday morning appeared to be steeling the Louisiana coast - and the nation - for consequences that could be 'catastrophic.'"

Maura O'Connor, GlobalPost: "The oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico is now about the size of Puerto Rico. It's already reached the marshes of Louisiana. Oil-covered wildlife are starting to show up along the shores. Shrimp, fish and oyster harvest areas have been closed. Residents of Mississippi and Alabama are just waiting for the oil to hit."

Things Fall Apart

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: "'Things fall apart,' William Butler Yeats wrote. 'The center cannot hold; mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, the blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned.' He could have been talking about us, about this past week in America, about what happens when madness, greed and fear combine and conspire to show us what it looks like when the gates of Hell crack open."

Ongoing Safety Violations at BP's Refineries Endanger Employees' Lives

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "BP Plc's troubles are not just limited to its Gulf of Mexico operations, where a deadly blast aboard a drilling rig two weeks ago ruptured an oil well 5,000 feet below the sea's surface and triggered a massive oil leak that is now the size of a small country."

Politico

05/03/10

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday reversed his support for offshore drilling in the wake of a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Speaking at a press conference in Sacramento, Schwarzenegger said his mind was changed over the weekend while watching media reports of the spill. … The term-limited Republican governor had previous proposed that the state expand drilling off the coast of Santa Barbara in part to help fill the state’s gaping budget deficit...

We might be powerless. The oil flowing out from the seabed in the Gulf of Mexico may be under such great pressure that we do not possess technology to stop the tragedy. Chances are quite good we have no true sense of the dire nature of the situation. The facts that have been ascertained, however, lead to a dark scenario...

Obamalaise

Liberty Unbound
by Gary Jason

05/10

An ocean of ink has been devoted to the surprising election results in Virginia, New Jersey, and especially Massachusetts. There is so much angst in the country that even the exceptionally obtuse Obama has become aware of it. To use a term rendered infamous by the feckless Jimmy Carter, we are experiencing a national malaise. But what Obama fails to comprehend is that at the root of the current national malaise is Obama himself. In this, as in many other ways, Obama uncannily resembles Carter, who projected his own defects of thought and action onto the nation, generating the anxiety and distrust he was purporting to heal. We can rightly call the national mood ‘Obamalaise,’ because it arises not just from Obama’s agenda but from his character...
