Gulf of Mexico tragedy - updated

WASHINGTON — In a closed-door briefing for members of Congress, a senior BP executive conceded Tuesday that the ruptured oil well in the Gulf of Mexico could conceivably spill as much as 60,000 barrels a day of oil, more than 10 times the estimate of the current flow.
From the NYT.

This is an Exxon Valdez every 4 days or so; with no end in sight.
