It's been a year since the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig.
Eleven rig workers were killed.
Billed as the worst environmental disaster in the nation's history.
"It's been a long struggle - for the tens of thousands of people in Louisiana and along the gulf coast for that matter - in the fishing, oil and tourism industries."
The rig - spewed millions of barrels worth of oil into the gulf.
And the oil continues to wreak havoc...
"Is it fair to say that what happened last year is not a fair assessment of that industry?"
....Forrest Goodman - of WREC in Memphis Tennessee.
"Yeah absolutely - even the Presidents own oil spill commission report - suggested that several times that this wasn't a systemic flaw - but an isolated incident - and make sure that we learn from it and make sure that they act in a safe manner - but certainly - you know this is not something that is not a systemic problem of on-shore or offshore drilling."
That was Nick Loris an Environmental and Regulation Expert at the Heritage Foundation.
Buzzing right along...
The FAA - making news - yet again!
Well not them - but another one of their Air Traffic Controllers...
This time - for watching a movie when he was supposed to be monitoring aircraft!
Why are we seeing all these problems with Air Traffic Controllers, lately?
The answer -- the FAA - is quickly losing its veteran Air Traffic Controllers to retirement...
"And the experience level is quickly turning into a rookie game."
That was Paul Fagras - a Former Air Traffic Supervisor and Air Traffic Consultant.
" ...You know - unfortunately I see more of these events in the future and i think we're starting to see the first of the manifestation of this lack of experience."
So how did the guy get busted?
Apparently the Controller's microphone was left inadvertently activated -- transmitting the movie's soundtrack for more than three minutes... To all the planes in the airspace!
The movie - the 2007 crime thriller - "Cleaner" - starring Samuel L. Jackson...
