This from DailyKos:
"I think it's worth reiterating a key point from yesterday: one of the most important ways to prevent spills like this from happening in the future is making sure that BP is held accountable for the full costs of the rescue, cleanup, and recovery. No bailout for BP. If oil companies want to pocket enormous profits, they must also take responsibility for the risks."
I'm pretty sure Exxon has not paid up for the Valdez disaster, correct?
