According the Harry Reid, Nevada's contribution to us all, it wasn't drilling through gas hydrates, a bad cement job, a failed blow out preventer, and poor on-site engineering that caused the Transocean Horizon disaster. It was Greed.
There is something galling about the Gentleman from Las Vegas lecturing the world about Greed. Fortunately for all of us, his career as a statesmen is about over.
Another genius, Ted Turner, who should have been hospitalized and put under psychiatric observation by his children when he donated a billion dollars to the United Nations (although he later welched because his net worth had been decimated by AOL), pondered that God was telling us that oil is bad.
How he reconciles this position with his avowed atheism (remember he left wife Jane Fonda when she told him she had found God) is still unclear. Perhaps he means it in the way he has always meant it... I think it is wrong, and thus God thinks it is wrong. How very Catholic of the Mouth from the South.
