It is moments such as these where the motivations and intelligence of the top dogs are presented as clearly as they can be.
Again, I have to agree with you, Justan!
And if you go to the link and manage to force-read the comments you will see how brilliantly the underdogs represent themselves too, in a fine mélange of rustic swamp pop logic and quasi-truth.
(I must state here that I have no money in BP. And not much in the bank anymore either, thanks to the entrepreneurial expertise of US banking heads and the domestic purchases of which they approved. I read that BP's chief is being crititicised anew for having been near a yacht recently rather than concentrating on winding himself up into an even further advanced state of hopeless and pointless mental breakdown. I expect that Mr and Mrs Obama will shortly announce that they have sworn to sleep in separate bedrooms until every grain of southern sand is pristine once more, and every alligator flashes that Colgate smile!)
Meanwhile, back in the gloop, gloop, plop...
Ah, the wonderful world in which we live!
