Day 68, and the oil spill continues

This is a picture of the A Whale, the largest oil skimmer in the world, with the capacity to skim 500, 000 barrels a day.  The rest of  the skimmers in the Gulf combined have skimmed 600,000 barrels combined. 

The A Whale was tied to a dock in Norfolk, Virginia waiting for authorization from the Coast Guard and the EPA who were concernede about safety and environmental impact.  Does anyone really care?  Why can't bureaucrats cease being bureucrats while the oil spill in the Gulf continues to gush? 

Let us try anything that seems capable of helping.  We will have plenty of time to push pencils after the oil is continues.
