Oil Platform Explodes In The Gulf Of Mexico Off The Louisiana Coast

Another oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico has exploded this week.  Ho hum.  Nothing to see here.  Carry on.

By the way, the coast guard originally reported a mile long sheen on the water’s surface coming from the rig.  This report was quickly retracted.  Unlike BP’s Deepwater Horizon, this explosion did not claim any lives.  With thousands of aging rigs in the gulf, expect more of the same.
