Something Someone Else Said

"Of all the lessons we can learn from the BP fiasco, the simplest, and the first we should apply to offshore-drilling laws, is this: Don't open any holes you can't close. If the well site is too deep for humans to reach, drill a simultaneous relief well so you can plug a blowout promptly. If a relief well is too expensive, don't drill at all. Or you can keep robots on hand to shut down leaks. But they'll have to be better robots than the ones we're now watching.

Today's laws don't come anywhere near this standard." -

How do you have time for oil when the Big 12 is imploding?!

I've been fairly busy lately one L so I haven't had the time to read up on the collapse of the Big XII. To be honest the first I heard about it was watching a mute TV screen in a bar last night but then I forgot to look up what was happening when I got home. I promise to write something about it soon.

The imploding of the Big 12 just means Nebraska will now beat up Illinois twice a year.
