No disrespect intended to Eddie as a comedian... I'm sure he's great.

but your take IS my take... BP is not 100% responsible (I've never claimed that)... but I bet 75%+ is their fault. Since they clearly bear the majority (>50%)- make them pay and fix it, and they can settle the rest of the issues with their contractors in the courts.
