My prediction?

Absolutely noone will lose a job over this. A container ship rams the Bay Bridge, spills 58,000 gallons of oil in to the bay, and people dawdle. No problem!

What does it take to get fired these days anyway?

I'm so furious I can't even tell you.
Emergency officials were pressured Thursday to explain why it took them hours to announce that 58,000 gallons of oil had leaked from a container ship that rammed the Bay Bridge on Wednesday - creating a slick that has contaminated beaches and injured hundreds of birds from Hunters Point to the Marin Headlands and out to the Farallon Islands.

San Francisco officials, frustrated that they weren't told immediately about the severity of the spill, threatened legal action against the company or agency responsible for the disaster.

Threatened? Let's hope they'll do more than that, because this kind of fuck-up is reprehensible and inexcuseable to say the least!!!
