Dear Mr. President...

Dear Mr. President,

When your opponents began referring to the BP drilling disaster as "Obama's Katrina," I dismissed their criticisms as typical partisan opportunism. The record clearly shows your administration responded in a timely and pro-active manner when informed of the disaster.

That said, it has been a month since the accident, and unless immediate action is taken, the ecology and economy of the Gulf Coast will be irreparably damaged.

Please consider sealing the well using the method all agree will work: collapse the fissure with a controlled detonation of high explosives.

BP has time and time again demonstrated its only priority is making a profit. With the Alaskan pipeline leak and Texas City refinery explosion, this is the third major disaster directly attributable to the firm's cost-cutting policies in just five years.

I was disappointed when you announced your offshore drilling policy. Please don't compound the error by placing BP's financial interests ahead of the welfare of the people and the ecology of the Gulf Coast.
