Below is a comment left at the Times-Picayne, the New Orleans paper that's doing a great job of reporting on Louisiana issues and efforts connected with the BP Oil Spill crisis. This is the first time I've heard of Buzzard's Bay:

President Barack Obama has said, "BP is responsible for this leak. BP will be paying the bill,."The question is which bill is the president talking about? Is it all the bills to the federal government and the residential home owners property damage bills?
The residents of the gulf need to find out how they will get paid for residential property damage!
We have got ask if this is true then should all the residents of Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts receive their residential property damages from the oil spill in 2003 and if not why? The residents of Buzzards Bay have been waiting years for compensation!
On April 27, 2003, eight years ago the Bouchard Barge B-120 hit an obstacle in Buzzards Bay, creating a 12-foot rupture in its hull and discharging an estimated 100,000 gallons of No. 6 oil. The oil is known to have affected an estimated 90 miles of shoreline, killed 450 numerous bird species, and recreational use of the bay, such as shell fishing and boating.
