BP reopens part of oil cap to prepare for test

• AP
BP is temporarily letting oil pour out of a second pipe on its untested cap as part of preparations for closing all the valves to see how well it can contain the gusher.

The federal government’s point man on the disaster, Thad Allen, says all the pipes may be closed later today. That would start a 48-hour experiment to see if the massive capping stack can stop the oil without blowing a new hole in the well.
