Diary of a Whiny Writer, Day 69

Watched 60 Minutes last night. They devoted most of the hour to the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon. They got Mike Williams to repeat on camera, almost word for word, his testimony before the Coast Guard hearings about his ordeal after the explosions, and some of his concerns about safety on the rig. Then they interviewed an engineering professor who didn’t really seem to know much about oil drilling. They leapt wildly to some wrong conclusions about what was significant, and missed the most significant issues entirely. I’d been cursing the ungodly danged complexity of the blowout all day, but watching 60 Minutes, I was grateful for it.
