    Yet, you don't see any masks or gloves.  People will get is on their skin.  I spoke to someone down there.  He said that the EPA tested the air and said that it was fine.

    By law, isn't the oil company supposed to have educated the local emergency people and population about what to do in the event of a spill.

      apparatus in the Gulf Gusher too, but they didn't. Because they said it wasn't harmful. I think they were worried that if locals saw hazmat suits with respirators, that it would be a huge piece of evidence in the coming law suits for various ailments caused by exposure to oil and corexit and of course the resulting, aersolized mixes released into the air by wind and wave action.

      The phrase of the day is, "Plausible Deniability."
