‘Top Kill’ Effort Seems to Be Working, U.S. Says Cautiously

From The New York Times website:

"BP began the well-plugging maneuver, known as a top kill, on Wednesday, amid hopes that injecting heavy drilling fluid deep into the well could stem the relentless flow of oil that has devastated commercial fishing in the Gulf, fouled miles of coastline and put the company and federal regulators at the center of a political firestorm."

The end is in sight.

Please cross your fingers, or pray, or just send positive thoughts down to the Gulf.

Thanks in advance.

All fingers and toes crossed. May the flow be stopped, may the cleanup get done and the healing of the sea and its creatures begin.

All of the above from me to the Gulf!! :-)

Ugh, yeah, I'm really praying for that to be "fixed" soon, as much as you can possibly fix dumping billions of gallons of oil into the ocean. This is a sobering reminder of how man can negatively affect the environment.

I think of you every time I hear about it. Fingers crossed, and praying, and hoping they get it under control soon.

This entire situation is INSANE. I'm sort of terrified of the environmental impact. Sending lots of good vibes your way.
