from Barry's last news conference question from Jake Tapper.
There are industry experts who say that theyíre surprised that tankers havenít been sent out there to vacuum, as was done in í93 outside Saudi Arabia. And then, of course, thereís the fact that there are 17 countries that have offered to help and itís only been accepted from two countries, Norway and Mexico. How can you say that everything that can be done is being done with all these experts and all these officials saying thatís not true?
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."

You linked to an interesting article about the obstacles created by the Jones Act. Since the Act has been around since the 1920s, I assume it must have some value. The article implies the Jones Act is an obstacle to getting more help, and somehow I bet that neither party will want to touch it in an election year:
Jones Act of 1920 Barring BP Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill 2010 Cleanup. The Jones Act of 1920 is formally named the Merchant Marine act of 1920 and it’s becoming something that is being talked about in the wake of the Gulf oil spill. The Act requires that ships that do business within the US be staffed with at least 75% American Citizens. In addition, ships that operate within the US have heavy restrictions placed on foreign manufacture.
This cant be true. I will not believe a person can be this cruel unless I have allot of more proof, and I mean allot. He would know how much we need these things now.
especially now, because the live feed has died, and some believe the ROV RISER CAP Failed and the well is now out of control again, as of 06-11 around 10:30. If true they would need to machine build a new one.
