BATTLE CREEK, Mich. Federal officials now estimate that more than 1 million gallons of oil may have spilled into a major river in southern Michigan, and the governor is sharply criticizing clean-up efforts as "wholly inadequate."

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released the update Wednesday night, shortly after Gov. Jennifer Granholm lambasted attempts to contain the oil flowing down the Kalamazoo River. She warned of a "tragedy of historic proportions" if the oil reaches Lake Michigan, which is still at least 80 miles downstream from where oil has been seen.

You know, I just assumed these drillers knew that their equipment needed constant maintenance/monitoring. What did they think would happen? That their pipes would last forever and never weaken? Was it "cost-prohibitive" to do? Well, now look at the cost.
