The ineptitude ought to be a possibility


[this is good] Yep. I'm so tired of amoral corporations.


You know, corporations are by design amoral, and always have been. The problem here is our continuing failure to recognize that something will always go wrong - the worst-case scenario will, eventually, come to pass. If the worst-case scenario has you losing seven astronauts, or losing the Gulf of Mexico, and you're not willing to do that, then you just shouldn't take the risk.
We're not built that way though; we'll always take the risk, and as our technological capability grows, the downside gets larger and larger.


It makes me sick just to think of it. I can bare to look at the images.


[this is good] I am new to your blog and I discovered it through Nancy Mitchell's blog. I love your header image of beautiful sparrows (are they sparrows?) hopping around :) I found your post very thought-provoking. Everyday when I see the news about the oil leaking in the gulf, it makes me very depressed and sad. I don't know whether this kind of mess can be ever cleaned. I don't know how they let this happen and the way the BP folks have handled this disaster is really sad. On top of this, I heard that BP might be giving a dividend to its shareholders - I didn't know whether to laugh or to cry.
