Observing Gulf Oil Spill Anniversary

Item: Deepwater Horizon victims' families mark first anniversary of oil spill: Relatives of the 11 workers killed when BP's rig burst into flames overfly the site by helicopter while oil still washes up on beaches/Associated Press

More Info: Relatives of some of the 11 men who died aboard the Deepwater Horizon oil rig are to fly over the Gulf of Mexico to mark the first anniversary of the worst offshore oil spill in US history. On land, vigils were scheduled in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida to mark the moment on the night of 20 April last year when the rig, owned by Transocean Ltd, burst into flames while drilling a well for BP.

Question: Did the Gulf Oil spill one year ago today change your view of deep-water drilling off our coasts?
