Comment of the day
US government could kill two birds with one stone: offer every unemployed person in the affected states a job on the coast clearing up the oil, and send the full bill to BP.
Help the economy and clean the spill.
Well, big assumptions!
I mean, that sounds like a really good idea -- almost like a jobs guarantee! -- but there are two facts not entered into evidence about the US government:
1. That they want to hand BP the bill for anything; and
2. That they they think people being unemployed is a problem.
Well, maybe another:
3. That they care about the Gulf of Mexico.
