Now the oil titan is promising their next effort to stop the leak in the Gulf of Mexico is permanent, pinkie swear. Which is, of course, utter bullshit. If they had the permanent solution all along, they would have implemented it months ago.

Speaking of the many-month long oil spill, if you'd like to keep up with exactly how long this disaster has been going on, or how much oil's been leaked, check out the BP Oil Spill Clock, courtesy of PBS. Today is day 85, in case you're wondering.

If you'd like to read more about BP's latest promises, read today's article in The New York Times. I'm not going to waste my time repeating them here, since there will likely be a new round of promises next week.

If you'd like to read about how this nightmare is affecting our relationship with Great Britain, read today's Reuter's article.
