I think the issue here is the fact that she's having to pay the fee even though she's now living in an area with no service. This has nothing to do with the fact that she is a widow, this is just asshattery on VZW's part. I know certain other carriers allow you to cancel under similar circumstances without paying the ETF (AT&T).

For BP, "response effort" means "when the fuck can we start pumping again?"

I'm betting that they will never be pumping from that well ever again, and they likely know this. They are going to have to plug this hole up tight to make it stop leaking, and there is a trashed rig over the hole. It would be easier and cheaper to drill a new hole a few miles away.

They do not know this. Hence the 'siphoning'. They could STOP the flow if they wanted, they are trying to RECOVER the oil.
