BP containment funnel fails

Damn. I was really hoping this would work, but the containment box that was supposed to enclose the leak at the sunken BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig failed when it turned into a methane crystal generator almost as soon as it was lowered into the sea. It's now sitting on the seabed some distance from the still gushing oil leak while they try to figure out what to do next.

Meanwhile, I hear tar balls are starting to wash up on the beach in Alabama. I'd like to shove them down Rush Limbaugh's throat the next time he makes a "joke" about how this isn't really a big deal.

This is so frustrating. I was hoping this might work, too.

Very sad and a little scary to consider what the long term damage is going to be.
