Well, this happens to be a trifecta of days. This is Earth Day, Good Friday and the anniversary of the worse ecological disaster in U. S. history, the BP oil spill. Now Earth Day is a day to celebrate and Good Friday for Christians is a day of blessing.
But, one year later, after the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill started it is a bittersweet day indeed. In the Gulf Coast region BP claims are still rolling in from people injured or out of work from the environmental disaster.
Yesterday, BP announced that they are suing their partners in this disaster. Transocean, Halliburton (Dick Cheney anyone), and Cameron International, the maker of blowout preventer are all on the block for a collective $40 billion in damages if BP has its way.
