BP oil collection interrupted

BP stopped recovering oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico on Friday night because of a problem aboard the drilling ship Discover Enterprise, said Ayla Kelley, spokesperson for the Deepwater Horizon Command Center. Oil collection stopped for 10 hours, resuming at 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

    BHOPAL. Much much worse then the BP tragedy. The Gas from American Company Union Carbide, in the city of Bhopal, in India, caused 3000 to die the first few days AND 15000 have died since 1984; and still dying today. So come on Yes the Oil
    is grim and will do terrible damage in the Gulf and even more sad; the oil workers that died. However, not thousands upon thousands. The Congressman that screamed against BP, he knew of the disaster of Bhopal, but has said very little. (Say 3000 died in the States, plus15000 and climbing .Not of BP but Union Carbine)
    The American's that can't handle this company BP, should understand that most workers are from the US; plus a great many of the share holders are from the same country. !!!???. Lets not have Justice; this sort of American style.
