Beyond the oil spill

The tragedy of an ailing Gulf - New York Times article 

How easy it is to point fingers at the 'other' - we do this in so many ways and in so many areas of our life. 
This particular Gulf-related situation begs the question. . . are we not all BPs; as responsible for the catastrophe as we are for the clean-up? The metaphorical implications implied in this question are many and plain. . . 

gulf |gÉ™lf|
1. a deep inlet of the sea almost surrounded by land, with a narrow mouth.
2. a deep ravine, chasm, or abyss.
figurative a large difference or division between two people or groups, or between viewpoints, concepts, or situations : a wide gulf between theory and practice.

                                                 the waters
