“What did we do to deserve this?” BP CEO Tony Hayward
If you haven’t seen the CBS 60 Minutes report and you care about the Gulf of Mexico, take the time to watch now. I know this isn’t all the evidence that’s going to be collected on the debacle, and this eyewitness testimony nor the engineer’s observation are of themselves conclusive. But I’ll be damned if I haven’t heard the same story over and over from corporations that damage things and kill people. They screwed up not to make a profit. They already do that fine in the normal course. It’s just to make the profit greater and quicker.
