Timeline: Oil spill in the Gulf
Sadly, Operation Top Kills is dead there was just too much flow so now it's on to a new plan. This time BP is trying to lower a marine riser package which means a custom fit piece of equipment to cap off the leak. By the way of what a difference a few thousand barrels can make when it comes to the bottom line now the White House is saying that BP might have intentionally said that the leak was pushing out 5,000 barrels of oil a day because they pay a penalty based on the amount of barrels.

No word yet on the success or lack of if yet on Operation Top Kill. In fact the efforts had to be suspended for 16 hours as the pump was restarted late on Thursday afternoon. Nothing went wrong it's just the engineers needing to monitor the mud to make sure it's doing what is should be doing. So how close is BP to stopping the leak nobody knows at this point it'll probably be another 24 to 48 hours.

Oh and the 5,000 barrels a day was dead wrong and I guess that's where the shaky math part comes into play. Apparently the true estimate is close to 19 million gallons of oil that has been spilled so far which trumps the Valdez. More on the continuing saga in the Gulf of Mexico tonight on ATN.

Operation Top Kill is underway in the Gulf of Mexico but will it work? Heavy mud is being pumped into the leaky well as you are reading this story. The Brains behind BP say they should know by late tomorrow if they can pump cement in the well to seal the hole. BP isn't gambling on more bad PR so they've pegged the possibility of success at 60%. My odds are a little different how bout' yours?

KWAME KILPATRICK, former Detroit mayor, feeling sorry for himself before being sentenced to up to five years in jail for violating his probation. All he could muster up was this, "I don't think anyone in this courtroom can know what it's like to be on the global newswire with text messages to someone that your wife is reading." He's just upset that after living high off the hog in Texas he now has to settle for a prison palace and grub.
The latest bailout being proposed on the hill comes from the desk of Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) it would bail out the unions who have underfunded and insolvent pension funds to the tune of $165 Billion. You can expect that number to jump by leaps and bounds in the end if the bill is passed. Tonight we talk to Andrew Langer, the President of the Institute for Liberty about the payback to Big Labor. What about the Gringo Masks being sold by a Miami company is it Fair or Foul? All this and more on ATN.

Tonight we talk to Michael Bohdan the man who collects them and displays them for all the world to see. He even holds cockroach races and best dressed contests.
