If I were a religious man, I would take the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, the spilling of millions of gallons of oil and gas, their engulfing of the Gulf of Mexico waters and destruction of fish and wildlife in untold numbers . . . I would take this all, mind you, BP, as a sign from the deity.
And if the deity could speak like Mel Brook’s 2,000 Year Old Man, I would imagine it would say, “You, mankind, you have been cajoling me for more oil and gas for hundreds of years. The more I give you the more you want. Enough is never enough. So here’s enough, a volcano of oil and gas, a mountain of it, a pox on your house. Choke on it. Now, leave me alone. And if you’re smart, stop it, and don’t fight amongst yourselves like a pack of hungry monkeys. Such schmucks I made in my image, I can’t believe it.” Nor can I, voice, and I’m not even a believer, in a deity or the devil. But jeez, this looks like both of them in a cosmic World Series.
