BP oil spill: words flow in Louisiana, but communication is blocked

The mood in Louisiana over the Deep Horizon oil catastrophe has matured from shock, to bafflement, to anger and has now slipped into the surreal. Stanton had come, along with a senior representative of BP, to address the people of Phoenix, a small community on the east bank of the Mississippi.

In the end, the head of the coastguard adopted a more conciliatory tone. "There's nothing I can say that will comfort you," he said to the crowd whose livelihoods – some believe their entire way of life – are in the balance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But there is one thing absolutely bankable, in the face of this disaster; expect lies, more lies, political finger-pointing, and more attempts to pass the buck on culpability here.
