For the first several weeks of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico I wanted desperately to blame someone. It was hard watching the massive flow emanating from the ocean floor. Someone had to be held accountable. BP CEO, Tony Hayward, seemed an appropriate target with his flippant remarks and underestimation of the devastation caused by the spill. Yet, somewhere along the way I admitted to myself that I actually caused that spill, and I am very sorry for the result.
