Efforts to Stop the Leaking Oil in the Gulf of Mexico - Graphic - NYTimes.com

A wonderful graphic from the NY Times describes in the detail this engineer loves the various blowout containment attempts leading up to the apparently successful containment of the oil leak from the Macondo Prospect well.

Considering the complex engineering and fabrication work in the background and the complicated logistics of managing this effort a mile underwater under the threat of the hurricane season and intense public criticism, BP deserves some appreciation for getting this done... finally.

The TV talking heads cannot possibly deliver this level of detailed reporting and most of the public could care less how they stopped the leak.
