In my analytical way of thinking, the breakdown products are what we will need to evaluate. Things bio-accumulate and we just don't really know what will happen. It might actually dissapate, but 10 years from now, we might find out some molecular breakdown product is leading to some amino acid deficiency causing kidney failure in a statistically significant portion of the population that eat raw oyster, or crab meat, or tuna etc....

I don't think BP should be able to stretch out the litigations over many years. Many good people, hard working fisherman, oilmen, family businesses, are on the ropes because BP and they really need to resolve this sooner than later. I read just the other day that the Fienberg account hasn't even received funding yet...
Well stated.

thanks redsoxman.. i just re-read my quote from your post and sometimes i really can't believe how ridiculous i can make myself look.... a 360 would actually just end up right back where we are.. i really meant a 180..
