Boatjob, i agree with pretty much everything you say, but i disagree that the choice for the head of the MMS is a poor one because he does not have an oil background. From what has been reported, the incestuous relationship between the oil industry and the MMS was due to the fact that lots of the MMS people had previously been oil people.

This new guy isn't going to be the one conducting the inspections. He will be running the show, making sure his people are doing their jobs, not doing drugs.

Finally, I think the government should end the moratorium when all rigs are inspected, and when the industry (either individual companies, or the industry as a whole) can fully respond to failures in the future. What I'm talking about here is deep water dredging capability. This is something the european companies require, and there are deep water dredgers in europe that can suck up oil to depths of 6500 feet. But, of course, we don't have that here, because the government, driven by big oil money, decided it wasn't necessary.

Meanwhile, the regulations in place should be compared to those of other countries to ensure there are no other gaping wholes.
