The inscription above the main entrance to Nebraska's beautiful State Capitol reads: "The Salvation of the State is Watchfulness in the Citizen." That's the whole idea behind neighborhood watch: residents will recognize and report criminal activity more readily if they know one another, and will deter crime by their watchfulness. We need a "cyber neighborhood watch" of the now five week old BP oil blowout disaster on the internet, and I am posting some links daily from here on out to help my fellow citizens do just that. The Gulf of Mexico is everyone's neighbor, so please help out with this "neighborhood watch".
From CBS: Gulf of Mexico "Poisoned"
Wall Street Journal "It’s become apparent that errors in judgment of workers on the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform probably caused the explosion that destroyed the rig and triggered a huge oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
But whose errors were they? Was BP, Transocean or Haliburton to blame?"
The Seminal: A series of explosions appears to have collapsed the seafloor and blown up the BOP at the well head.
Yet another BP oil leak? Zero Hedge
BP Ready to try top kill. Good luck and godspeed.
