Macondo

Now that the crisis is coming to an end, does anyone else find it very intriguing that the name of the BP well reeking all the havoc is “Macondo”. I couldn’t help but notice how ironically Márquez it was. All I can conjure was mental images of the rivers of blood flowing down the streets of the literary Macondo. Death and destruction seem linked to the name.
