not true:

In a June 15 press release, the Deepwater Horizon Incident Joint Information Center said,




"Currently, 15 foreign-flagged vessels are involved in the largest response to an oil spill in U.S. history.No Jones Act waivers have been granted because none of these vessels have required such a waiver to conduct their operations in the Gulf of Mexico. There are no pending requests for foreign vessels to come into the Gulf."

However, in order to prepare for any potential need, Admiral Allen has provided guidance to the Coast Guard Federal On-Scene Coordinator, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and the U.S. Maritime Administration to ensure any Jones Act waiver requests receive urgent attention and processing.

I stand corrected. More info:

I spent a day last week with an oil and gas guy, among others, and there was an argument over the Jones Act and the oil and gas guy was claiming they'd waived it. He seemed to be extremely knowledgeable about it all.

This makes sense since an ill fitting respirator is pretty much the same as no resirator at all. I have never been able to find a respirator that fits myface. It seems I'm between sizes. A small is too small and a medium is too large. Go figure.
