Oil Spill

I keep thinking about the oil spill. It troubles me that so much stupidity/incompetence has been surrounding it. The box idea was one of the worst. Even a young child could understand enough about hydrodynamics to know that a rectangular box placed on a round pipe would not contain a leak. I’m not sure if it’s just incompetence or something far more sinister.
