Insanity, Thy Name Is BP

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results," said... no, not Albert Einstein, not Benjamin Franklin, and not Mark Twain; look it up on wikiquote and you'll be astonished.

But damn, it's certainly true of BP: "BP Tries Again to Divert Oil Leak With Dome." The quote from the article that struck me most is this one:
If successful — and after the string of failures so far, there is no guarantee it will be — the containment dome may be able to capture most of the oil, but it would not plug the leak.
Oh, yeah, give 'em a chance; surely it'll work this time...
