Perfectly stated.

Heff said...

Still makes me SICK to see those pictures.

They now plan on having the oil leak stopped between July 20 - 27.

I'll bet that's simply MORE B.S.

When I think of the gulf heat mixed with the smell of crude and oil balls, day in and day out, it makes you wonder if they'll ever have an easy summer again.

Karl said...

Jackie Sue: Mine too. The first ones anger me in a way very hard to express.

Chickory: Yes

Moi: Comming from you. That means alot.

Heff: Trying to beat the deadline for reporting 2nd quarter earnings.

Buzz Kill: I fear it will be a long long time.

Hello Karl,

I hereby announce that you are the winner of this week's Haiku Thursday.

This will be the summer of the oil spill. And not the last one, either.

Have a good weekend.

Kymical Reactions said...

Karl said...

Boxer: Thank you. Keep you fingers crossed that this weekend efforts will stop the flow.

Kym: Yea, your back. I,m on my way.

So sorry I didn't make it by here earlier .... terrific haiku and definitely the best of the week. Totally agree with Boxie naming you winner.

Karl said...

Hey folks,

At 18:22 central time the new cap was set with no apparent leakage!

It's still early in the process but even if they can't shut the wellhead down the oil is now pouring into ships and not the gulf.

More to follow.

Well done Karl!
Been away so hadn't seen your visuals or yur poetry. Very nicely done on a horrid beyond measurement contrast of the summertimes.

Hope the cap works, really worried about the methane issue. You know anything about that?

Karl said...

Pam: Thank you. Sorry for the late reply have been a tad preoccupied.

Fishy: Thank you. At this point Pandora's box has been opened. I do not believe it will be the calamity, some are talking about. And one could make the argument that harvesting the natural gas could not only reduce the pressure issues. But be put to good use.
