    nice layout.
    “federal regulators/regulatory agencies” = which agencies and regulators exactly? who is in charge at these agencies? who hired them?
    which Corporate Boards do they sit on?

    All of the people whose decisons led to this should be facing criminal charges. Even if done “accidentally,” if a regular person did this, they’d be toast. They would proably face prison. Their lives would definitely not go on as before. Instead, CEO’s of big corporations try to spin it like they’re the victims, call the people they harm “litigious,” lobby for tort reform and less regulation, and maybe in the end pay a fine that affects none of the CEO’s lives. Long prison terms for corporate criminals might help this country to stop its descent into being a 3rd world country, but we also need to sever the financial relationship between corporations and govt. If this incident doesn’t wake people up to the fact we are governed by corporations now, I don’t know what will.

    I agree with CS. If one us regular people made any of these irresponsible, disasterous decisions, we’d be toast. Where’s the justice in this? As far as I’ve heard nobody has even lost their job (except the 11 poor grunts that lost not only their jobs, but also their lives. Somebody needs to pay for this stupidity.
