As of April 16th, 2008 all I knew for certain was that I could provide no one with any information about my health with any certainty. Oddly, living under the perpetual cloud of one step forward, one step back was not only familiar but oddly comforting for me. It was, after all, the one truism that I knew to be absolutely true, namely that everything good goes bad, everything alive dies and everything gained will be lost.
Edger (from DailyKos) had a diary up yesterday with some very good information in it on the developing Gulf Rig disaster.

There was a very good interview linked to in Edgers tip jar which I have transcribed, because it had a very important message in it.
Um James, Dallas Texas, WBAP, Go right ahead sir.
Um, just wanted to clear up a few things with the petroleum engineer.
Everything he said was correct. I was actually on the rig when it exploded and was at work.
Alright lets Slow down, woah woah, woah woah, hold on....
So you were working on this rig when it exploded.
OK. Go ahead
