WHO'S IN DEEP FOR DEEPWATER?
BP‘s settlement for the Deepwater Horizon spill was great headline-grabbing news recently.

But who’s in deep water for the Deepwater? Beneath the headlines, it looks as if we are. In case you missed it, under terms announced July 2, British Petroleum agreed to a record-breaking $18.7 billions to resolve claims related to the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
