Oil Oozes Out of Louisiana Ground

Quote

I’m sorry. We’re sorry for the massive disruption it’s caused their lives. There’s no one who wants this over more than I do. I’d like my life back.

BP CEO Tony Hayward. Pardon the lack of British-style civility in my response, but seriously Tony – cool your fucking jets. At best you guys screwed up royally, at worst you deserve to rot the rest of your life away in prison on hundreds of counts of criminal negligence and massive fraud perpetrated against your shareholders. I know having to cut your weekly caviar intake down is a bummer, but bitching about the lack of quality time in your existence right now is about the dumbest thing you could do. And trust me, we know, b/c you’ve already done things 2-10 on the Dumb Bucket List. [Thanks to Steve for the link.]
