HAMMOND, La. – At first, BP tried to stop the oil rushing into the Gulf of Mexico by flipping a blowout preventer switch. A week ago, they attempted to capture the leak with a 100-ton box. Now they've hit a snag as they try to guide a mile-long tube into the gusher to siphon the oil.

I did get wasted, but I'm not ignorant like most of my fellow citizens lol. It seems that its hard to stop a leaking pipe...hire a plumber for freaks sake and let them do the job. Its not that hard.
