Another Gulf oil rig explosion

Let's hope and pray this one doesn't turn out to be like the last.

Gulf oil rig explodes off La. coast

GRAND ISLE, La. -- An offshore oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, west of the site of the April blast that caused the massive oil spill.

A commercial helicopter company reported the blast around 9:30 a.m. CDT Thursday, Coast Guard Petty Officer Casey Ranel said. Seven helicopters, two airplanes and four boats were en route to the site, about 80 miles south of Vermilion Bay along the central Louisiana coast.

Just because it wasn't "producing" doesn't mean it isn't capable of gushing oil.

When will America get tired of corporation ruining our land, air and waters with impunity?
