The May 10 issue of the Nation, which I think printed before the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico became such a big deal, maybe even before the spill happened, carries a full-page advertisement on the back cover from, you guessed it BP -- "Beyond Petroleum." The adds is a multiple choice question answering "all of the above" to the choices "more oil," "more natural gas," "more wind," "more solar," "more biofuels" and "energy efficiency."
Maybe the word hadn't yet got out to the left-wing Nation editors that they are supposed to keep their boot on BP's throat. Sometimes companies get what they deserve...anyway, not to pile on BP, which as I said earlier has plenty of innocent, law-abiding employees and shareholders. But somehow BP and the Nation seem like a pair that deserve each other if there ever were one.
