"The first thing to say is I'm sorry," Tony Hayward said when asked what he would tell people in Louisiana, where heavy oil has already reached parts of the state's southeastern marshes.

"We're sorry for the massive disruption it's caused their lives. There's no one who wants this over more than I do. I would like my life back."

"There's no one who wants this over more than I do. I would like my life back."

IMO, Im sure there is.

If mother nature could talk, wonder what she'd say. No to mention all the sea creatures, fishermen, and everyone else effected by this monumental event.

Let's see him stand in front of them; all of them and tell them that.

If he is really sorry he will stop the obvious cover-up he is orchestrating over media coverage of this event.

If he is really sorry, he will not only pay 100% of the clean up costs, but will make sure also everyone who has been hit financially is taken care of.

If he is really sorry he will ask for help in solving the ongoing leak.

If he is really sorry he will initiate steps to rebuild the environmental damage his company's lackadaisical attitude towards safety has caused. Even knowing this will take generations.

If he is really sorry, he will admit the true amount of oil that is gushing out of his pipes into the Gulf of Mexico.

If he is really sorry, he will act like it......

As the saying goes, "Actions speak Louder than Words"
And the actions done by BP aren't loud enough to make us stop and listen. They need to show that they do. And to stop trying the same methods used over 30years ago.

They're the ones that wanted to fix the leak.

Just read this article about proper booming. The language is a little ruff but the point really gets made.

You may want to skip this at work or schools.

Why are they booming the shore lines incorrectly?

If he's really sorry, he'll sing like this, like a little prison 8!tCh...(no offense to Brenda Lee obviously).
He'll probably sing a little higher notes once convicted...

YOUR life??!!! I'm sure his life, future and finances are guaranteed.

What about the lives of the dead marine life and the future generations who have to suffer the consequences because of your greed!!!

The BP chief can be thrown in the sea with the dying fish as a sacrificial goodwill gesture to mother nature and promise that we'll never do this to her again.

I dont' think an apology coupled with his whining will suffice at all.
We all share some responsibility in this though. Unless you happen to be Amish. That's the really messed up part of all this. It seems they knew
better, but will share in the consequences anyway if this becomes an ele.

"BP needs to say it will pay to move those dredges and pump that sand berm," he said. "We are gonna die a slow death if we don't get that berm. We've got to have that barrier island."


Instead of saying it, How about doing it?

And this is just about 2 months in. What if it continues? Were going to have to pray for the best right now.

"I made a hurtful and thoughtless comment on Sunday when I said that 'I wanted my life back,'" Hayward said in a post to BP America's

Thats good that he apologized. Now all thats left to to get that leak to stop, and continue with the efforts of cleaning up the ocean.

So I heard on the news (BBC America) tonight while I was having dinner at my local bar that they were giving this, er-person, a hefty severance package, $18.5 mil to be exact. Here's the story I researched when I got home.

Google "bp-ceo-hayward-may-exit-with-18-5-million-severance-package-dudley-likely-successor"

This in my opinion is outrageous he should donate it to Gulf cleanup. I doubt Dudley will fair much better with the MSM, or perhaps he will be exalted as a hero, and Hayward gets to fade neatly into obscurity, scot-free. Hopefully, Cliff High's web bot predictions regarding the matter are accurate.
