I don't belive a tug boat really hit a well head. BS

This is the sand berms the dredge was collecting sand for. Dragging the seafloor collecting sand to put here.

These welll heads are marked on maps to show there locations but when somebody is as impatient as Bobby Jindall they don't care about studying the problem and figureing out how to do the job right they jump in both feet and screw things up. Even these sand berms they have already done are washing away as they build them and now they have a broken well head to add to the list of F^&8 ups!

Got any more to add to the list?
3 AM eastern, wed 28 july '10...
talk radio just announced a tug boat in Louisiana clipped a oil well,
so now theres another well leaking into gulf waters...
perhaps this will be used to confuse the issue of just how much oil pollution is from the deepwater horizon ...
if BP can lower their monetary penalty, all the better for them.
so, just to set a fictional scenario, a multinational oil conglomerate
pays a rogue tug captain to ram a oil well pipeline, the capt gets $50-100k as a payment for services... the oil corp says that most of the oil they spilled is already cleaned up & their fine should only be for the oil in the water before 27 july at $4k per bbl = $75million limit (example only)
~so now we have oil from 2 sources all mixed up in a confusing mess,
the tug boat incident is termed an accident & the big corporate oil co. saves 100s of millions in fines, for oil that was hidden beneath the surface in oil plumes, that finally gets recognized---but misidentified--- as oil from the tug boat incident at the other well site.

And here's what I dont' understand. As far as I know only the marshlands have been contaminated by oil.
Who the heck vacations in marshlands?
There has been no ecological damage to the gulf states as far as I know.
The only thing that has happened is GOP fear. And the sheeple followed right along.
So now, every time something happens they plaster it on the MSM to get you all afraid and flustered.

Thanks to redhatty on page one for her link to the local newspaper info. They say it was an abandoned well and that there are a lot like this one in the area. Hmmm why were they abandoned if they still have the potential to release oil etc...?
If they're gonna abandone them, why didn't they close them all up?
