Down in the Bay of Campeche there is a massive oil rig on fire and all 300 workers have been evacuated. This means the thing is burning out of control and all they can do is keep spraying water on it.

I suppose the next step will be to dump a few million more gallons of Corexit in the water to kill whatever remains of the sea life that used to be so abundant in the Gulf.

So even Mexico does oil disasters better than the U.S. More proof that Rome is falling IMO.
