Gulf oil well finally plugged | The Columbus Dispatch

Full story: Columbus Dispatch

After a series of sometimes absurd-sounding contraptions were tried, it was a crush of drilling mud that finally plugged the blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico, three months after the explosion of the offshore drilling rig unleashed a summer of misery along the Gulf Coast.

We aren't finished with this.
BP and Transocean and others need to address the safety issues and lousy management issues that caused this problem in the first place. As evidenced by other energy companies (coal mines, for instance), there has been reduced vigilance across the board over the last two decades.
It isn't government's responsibility to see that businesses behave responsibly, but there are times that a few spoil things for everybody. If energy businesses want government out of their business, then they had better begin effective policing of themselves (without internal lobbying to gain advantage).
