Note on the Fridge to BP

No Telling

Dear BP,

I don’t know where to begin. Clearly, neither do you. There’s no point in telling you how appalled I am at your corporate behavior and misbehavior. There are more than enough talking heads on every news channel and politicians running for re-election telling you that, and they’ve articulated this much better than I ever could. Besides, who am I to tell an oil conglomerate what to do?

As a mother and grandmother I am qualified to say this:

When you break something you must fix it.

We’re watching you, BP.

  1. Perfection is yours. I understand that there's some argey-bargey goping on between BP and Haliburton about whose gear actually broke, but this whole horrible debacle has given both conglomerates an astonishing opportunity of showing how well the capitalist model works at fixing foul-ups. They've both blown it.
    They both need to fix it.
    Listen to a grandmother, guys!

  2. Chime on in, Curtis. Maybe enough of us will make a noise they can actually hear.

    AoteaWriter, just hearing the word “Haliburton” gives me the heebie-jeebies – “you can't kil the boogie-man,” – that kind of thing.

    I understand that yesterday BP shut off the topkill for 16 hours without telling anyone. Way to be transparent.

    Another day or two of this and I fully expect to see BP running from a mob of angry Cajuns, led by James Carville and Mary Matalin.

  3. As a Gulf Coast Resident, and as someone who has plans that include the beach this summer, I give you a standing ovation Monda. I'm tired of the nausea and anger. It's probably not a good time for BP to announce where they're new HQ is for the clean up effort. It might make me want to pay them a visit.
