The dispersant sprayed into the Gulf both toxic and controversial, leading to an outburst on the first day of the hearings by the presidential commission on the spill.
More than 40,000 people possibly seeing reduced payments as a result.
A former BP contractor is now telling WDSU News that BP is not worried about cleaning up the spill, just about the bottom line.
Everybody has got to get upset about this and make the government work for us.

Some time later, a second, larger group of men whose affiliation couldn't be determined came with real cameras and started taking more pictures.

She suggested that they seemed to be baiting the panthers, and that the designated watcher may have given one of them the finger in response to the picture taking. She says she talked to the cops and told them there had been no incident.And a Pennsylvania spokesperson for Obama said the two men aren't in any way affiliated with the campaign. It says one of two black panthers on the scene was "allegedly blocking the door," says another was "holding a nightstick." and adds that "the concern was that they were intimidating people who were trying to go inside to vote." But Jacqueline Dischell, the Obama volunteer, tells me by phone that that's false.
