That idea about using a concrete dome to cover up the oil leak in the Gulf did not work. Experts are calling this the worst use of a concrete dome since they built that stadium for the Detroit Lions.
Congress told BP that they can’t “label this catastrophic failure an unpredictable and unforeseeable occurrence.” Congress used that excuse already for not catching the financial meltdown in time.
Greece is a relatively small country, much like a state in the U.S. But it overspent and over-borrowed, promised expensive pension plans, overtaxed, and it over-regulated business. So the state it would be here is California.
In Colorado, one of the gubernatorial candidates has taken out a Craigslist ad to find a running mate. Is that a good idea? It didn’t work so well when John McCain tried it.
The BP executives responsible for the big oil spill in the Gulf testified before Congress. They were criticized by the same guys that approved drilling in the Gulf.

The June edition of Playboy magazine will be printed in 3-D. Haven’t we had that for a while? It’s called a strip club.
Tiger Woods’ swing coach announced that he is quitting. Apparently he discovered that Tiger had 19 other swing coaches around the country.
The swing coach quit by text message, which is like karma shooting a hole-in-one.
BP is now using a special containment dome called a "top hat" that shoots methanol into the oil leak. A top hat that shoots methanol? That doesn't sound like an emergency device — that sounds like something Lady Gaga would wear to the VMAs.
