Editor's Note: After Tuesday's show feedback was overwhelmingly about the oil disaster. Many wrote in with their suggestions on how to stop the flow of oil into the gulf. What do you think?
I am ignorant about the oil industry, but being an auto mechanic makes me to know nuts and bolts! The way I see this BP oil situation, is that it's gushing out of a broken/cut pipe, which is a two-piece pipe that has been bolted together. Now my question is: how come they can't unbolt the broken pipe and replace it with a new bolted cap? In my business, sometimes the problem is as simple as this but make the mechanics to pull their hair out!
This show's (Anderson Cooper's) coverage of the news generally and the oil leak specifically is exemplary – the most thoughtful, intelligent and thorough of all the coverage I have viewed. And I've watched a lot. Mr. Cooper's honest and measured outrage is refreshing. I trust him. Trust is huge in 2010.
Anderson, you are doing an incredible job. Please keep it up, stay there until they listen! Thanks to your show, (my kids watch) my kids have listened and at ages 10 and 9 yrs have organized a fundraiser at their elementary school for the Gulf. You can help to change the world, one little corner at a time.
Thank you for your stunning coverage of the Gulf oil disaster. I think what you're doing is a great public service. Please keep up the great work and the pressure on BP and the Obama administration. You are the conscience of our nation.
