Corporations Play While The Little Man Pays

Latest on oil stuff here. What really gets me is this:

Exxon Mobil Corp. , the world's largest publicly traded oil company, posted a 32 percent jump in quarterly profit on Thursday, as a relentless surge in crude oil prices and higher refining margins helped offset a hit from lower production.

Ok , read that you see that!?? A 32% jump in profit with lower production! I bet all the hard working regular folk that work there will all get a nice raise for their contribution. NOT. Please give us alternative energy soon.

former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow says he warned Novak TWICE not to out Plame and that she was not responsible for sending Wilson. She was ASKED to approach him about it.

"...Which is where Novak comes in. Pincus and VandeHei write that former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow spoke with Novak twice before the columnist outed Plame. Harlow said "he warned Novak, in the strongest terms he was permitted to use without revealing classified information, that Wilson's wife had not authorized the mission and that if he did write about it, her name should not be used." Harlow said he then checked that Plame was indeed working under cover and called Novak back to reiterate that she did not send her husband to Niger and that her name should not be used. Novak later wrote that the person he spoke to at the CIA said if her name were revealed, she probably would never get another overseas assignment and that there might be "difficulties" if she even traveled abroad. But, Novak said, he wasn't told that revealing her identity would endanger her or anyone else...

I posted "In Defense of Liberalism" by Korean War veteran John Ford, a very sharp guy on "coffee table."

It would be at the very BOTTOM of the comments.
