Pardon me....

"We both know the contract maintenance workers are far from the brightest people on the planet,"
I am dumbfounded…
Where does this come from? WTF does this have to do with anything related to this disaster?
I have spent 25 years in a maintenance role in natural gas processing and petrochemical facilities.
I have met pompous and arrogant engineering attitudes off and on yet I have never heard such a statement as that, especially under these circumstances. There are 15 families missing a father, brother, or son a day before the Easter weekend and some asshole on the internet is blowing off their contribution to society and their family.

I am lucky enough to live and work in Canada where worker safety is considered paramount.
My first reaction was how could this happen? Is BP not required by law down there to provide a safe working envelope? Obviously not, considering the safety record of that facility is appalling.

The callous attitude displayed here is very disturbing-pursuit of profit, cannon fodder mentality, and elitist.

I have read your posts in the past with some interest, you have seemed to have a certain insight and viewpoint that up until now I found valuable.
That won’t be true in the future.
This is my third try at this post, no doubt it will come off wrong
