    I feel sick that on my next trip to Mexico, I may fly over the Gulf and actually see the oil slick.

    @Heidi I believe about 17,000 national guard are available to help. They need to be activated by state governors. They're sort of at the door and ready to be called into action.

    @Isabel Nice to see you on the liveblog, miss seeing you each day. BP does need to open up the process, transparency is much needed in this catastrophe, seems like it only comes with prodding and oversight from the press.

    Thank you Anderson for your interviews with the bird rescuers at Fort Jackson. It's so heartening to see those pelicans cleaned and ready to be released but the thought that those are parents and their nesting young are without them shows in part the impact that continuing spill of oil into the gulf is having.

    Good night everyone.

    @Michael –

    That's just it, if we collect all of the oil we can get a better estimate on the fines BP would have to pay. BP wants the oil to sink so we can't collect it and therefore having a lower estimate on how much oil actually spilled into the Gulf, and thus having less fines to pay.

    Joan – Deep water drilling is extremely dangerous. Working on an oil rig, in fact, is extremely dangerous. Things like this do happen, no matter what safety measures are taken. Look up the Mexico spill. 30 years ago. Same failure of the blow out preventer. Exact same problem... 30 years later.

    Hi Anderson, I would like to see details about normal drilling operations, the sea-floor wellhead equipment, etc, and how it is all supposed to work to prevent something like this from happening and what went wrong. I have not seem anything like this information on CNN. We are all sitting in the dark, enlighten us.
