(*h/t Richard Haass of the Council on Foreign Relations, who made this BP joke on Morning Joe today. It was funnier, coming from Haass).
UPDATE: This morning’s news from that other BP? From the AP:
After days of progress on the Gulf of Mexico oil leak, BP said Wednesday that delays have temporarily stopped work beneath the water on both a stopgap solution and a permanent fix to the gusher. BP was vague about the reasons for pushing back tests of a new cap meant to trap oil in the well and why it stopped, for up to 48 hours, drilling on a relief well aimed at plugging the gusher for good from underground.Liz Cox Barrett is a freelance writer and graphic designer in Kalispell, Montana.
