Drill baby drill

One of the dumber slogans of all time. But here is a more recent take on drilling, or rather on one very specific and hard to spin drilling operation, from within the Oil Industry itself:
The LAT quotes him [chief operating office of BP] as saying, chillingly, at a news conference Saturday in Robert, LA, “After three full days, we have been unable to overcome the flow from the well, so we now believe it is time to move on to another option . . . This scares everybody — the fact that we can’t make this well stop flowing or the fact that we haven’t succeeded so far.”

This scares everybody. Well, not everybody. We still need that oil.
