A leaked confidential safety report shows key gulf oil rig components - including the Deepwater Horozion rig that exploded killing 11 men - hadn't been inspected in 10 years, and that includes the horozion's blow out preventer that is suppose to be inspected every 3-4 years. According to the New York Times many workers on the Deepwater Horizon were concerned about safety measures and feared reprisals if they spoke out about safety issues or unsafe behaviors on the rig.

Thank you for keeping us informed. Saw you and heard Thom at Frugal Muse books. I bought about ten books some to keep, some to give as gifts. Thank you for traveling and working on the show/website. Let's get these facts out there. We need Thom on Larry King by himself, not debating some teabagger. Love your efforts.

Of course the news would blame the president. If it was on Bush's watch, they'd blame.. the workers.
