We had a diesel spill on the Norfolk waterfront today. 1700 gallons into the Elizabeth River, the smell was all over downtown. Thankfully, they tracked down the owner of the boat.

That would be the U.S. Government, Environmental Protection Agency. Will congress drag the head of the EPA in to testify to his incompetence? Nooooo.

Now, to be fair, the EPA had just acquired the boat, so it probably isn't their fault that it is leaky. Maybe we can go after the previous owner for cleanup costs! Again, no way.

The EPA picked up this boat from the U.S. Government, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
