Another Oil Platform Explosion in the Gulf

Here we go again.

An oil rig belonging to the Houston-based company Mariner Energy has exploded and burst into flames.

An oil sheen about 100 feet wide has been spotted emanating from the platform, which is located 100 miles south of Louisiana's Vermilion Bay and about 200 miles west of the Deepwater Horizon BP disaster site.
