30 Pro bono paranormals failed to stop the mudflow!

100 Days passed since the first mudflow at Banjar Panji-1 well, Sidoarjo, East Java. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono just issued the decree to establish a team to tackle the environmental disaster. In a related development, a team of 30-plus paranormals have performed rituals to stop the mudflow but failed. They perform the superstitious rituals on pro bono basis, separated from 40-plus paranormals who competes for a US$9,000 grand prize provided by local village chief.

"The team has a duty to take integrated operational steps to overcome the blowout, including to shut the blowout, to handle mud flow and to handle social issues," the decree said as reported by Reuters on Tuesday.
Energy Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro will head the team that will include the public work, maritime and environment ministers, as well as top local government officials in the province.
I though the cabinet is a team so there is no need to establish a new team like that after 100 days people living dangerously. All we need is decision, to do something!
"Maybe the new team would manage the competition of paranormals as well. The team would likely provide more attractive prizes to assemble the best paranormals in the country," a friend commenting the too-late-team. (Have you notied that Indonesian ambullance cars have the sirene sounds like too-late, too-late, too-late?)
As reported by Antara today, apart from 40-plus paranormals who came from various ethnic groups in the country to perform supranatural mights to stop the mudflow for a US$9,000 grand prize, there were 30 paranormals who came to Sidoarjo and performed their supranatural gifts on pro-bono basis, but formally announced their failures today.
At competition arena, about 25 paranormals failed to pass qualification stage leaving another 20 yet to perform. Registration for the first phase had been closed on Sunday. If none of them managed to stop the mudflow, the organizer would open the second phase registration after the fasting month.

When every logical approach seems unsuccesful..then most Indonesian people naturally seek other approach...

but... from the very beginning, the mud flow incident has transformed from what initially should be logically solved (had it been the snubbing placed correctly with correct measurements) to be un-logical issue (clash between parties = Medco vs EMP; political pressure; blaming on the earthquake, etc)..

Well, just another episode of Indonesia's classical mentality problems : "no body wants to be blamed and even worse, no body wants to be responsible....."
