BP, welcome to the world of panic attacks, insomnia, loss of appetite, and complete exhaustion.
My honest thoughts are those folks are in a real jam here, in more ways than one.
They are like Iran. They are surrounded.
The American people, (and now the global community to some degree) are screaming bloody murder, and they have enormous pressure from this.
At the same time, they know what they are doing to our coastline, waters, and the effect it is having on local industry, as well as private lives.
This HAS to be haunting for *most* of them.
At the same time, they have shareholders pressuring them, because they don't want to see investments diminishing, and are concerned if in the end,
this could destroy their corporation.
They are trying to juggle all these balls, and are consequently moving to the middle. I think they are trying like hell to stop this gusher, but are
trying to do it in the most cost-effective way.
But I feel like what another poster said. When the house is on fire, you don't stop to worry about the water bill.
