Awards ceremony to celebrate oil drilling safety postponed

CBS News reports this interesting little tidbit today:

"In light of the massive oil spill in the Gulf, an awards ceremony to celebrate the safety of offshore oil drilling has been postponed. 

"A new posting on the U.S. Department of Interior's website says the annual awards luncheon held in Houston, Texas would be delayed noting, "The ongoing situation with the Transocean Deepwater Horizon drilling accident has caused the MMS to dedicate considerable resources to the successful resolution of this event, which will conflict with holding this ceremony next week."

"Last year BP won for "promoting improved medical care and evacuation capabilities for offshore facilities."
