Leak stoppage: job one

The Spokesman-Review

It seems to me that stopping this oil from leaking steadily into the Gulf of Mexico and threatening an ever-enlarging portion of our planet far exceeds in importance questions of blame, payment, political posturing and even cleanup and containment.

The only words we need to hear now from any governmental, corporate or media authorities are “the leak is stopped.” We will have more than ample time to address all the subsidiary issues after the primary danger is curtailed.
