It should finally be coming to an end. Even if this cap fails to
hold at pressure, they'll have 4 ships that can collect the oil.
Which they should have had April 15th.
Drilling a deep well without having a cap on warm standby is a major
part of the problem.
Ask BP's accountants to compare the cost of a cap Vs the

Rules can be changed.
It's sooo easy to be an "monday morning quarterback".
Additionally the cap in itself is useless. You also need a floating
oil production unit and oil collector ships standing by too.
This is akin to stating that every person cooking lunch should
have a fire crew standing by because that is cheaper than having
the house burn down should a pan catch fire.
I believe there are rules requiring towns/counties to have fire
stations with crews and equipment on standby. Particularly in the UK.
In the US,cities or towns do not -have- to have a fire department.
some small towns/cities contract out to nearby towns.
and rural homes are often many miles away from any fire department.
Company office blocks are required to have fire resistant doors and
if a "fire-resistant" door fails,does the door company get sued?
(without any investigation...)
