They were a couple of miles outside of South Pass, off the coast of Louisiana, chasing kingfish on the first day of August, a picture-perfect day.  But after nearly two hours on the water, there was only one fish to show for their effort. 

Two years ago today the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, due to poor decisions made by BP and Halliburton engineers, killing 11 rig workers and spilling upwards of 200 million gallons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. As tragic as that moment was, the tragedy continues to spread, much as the 1.8 million gallons of chemical dispersants spread far beyond the waters where they were targeted.
