That is hysterical. Neither I nor anyone else is saying we should investigate blame instead of cleaning up (and what exactly are you claiming Mario is doing to assist with that?!?) Generally, an ambulance shows up at a shooting, and the police. You are saying there is no need for the police here, as if no crime could have been committed. Further: without an investigation, how are you going to prevent this from happening again? The most responsible party (BP oil) needs to be stopped and we need some concrete work done to prevent it from happening again, which means investigating the cause and establishing blame. Any other response would only be contributing to continuing irresponsibility by the government/industry.... and by the way... there is a big difference between your analogy and the current situation... in our situation the kid ain't dead... s/he's bleeding out right in front of our eyes and instead of taking the kid to the hospital, we're standing in a circle saying "You did it!" At least Mario and 80,000 others are apparently throwing some gauss on the wounds.
Not to mention that an ineffectual clean-up operation is simply a PR operation, whether it's ineffectual by design or just because of incompetent organization by BP and the gov, and from what I've seen that deserves some scrutiny too. Some bunch of flakes running around throwing water (or better yet, sawdust) on a flaming building does not deserve anyone's respect or admiration, so spare me the vacuous rhetoric.
