I’m not against capitalism, free-enterprise and the American-way-of-life… although I firmly believe all of those are, as the Hopi would call it – Koyaanisqatsi – life out of balance.
Occasionally that state of Koyaanisqatsi is made more insane by an umbrella of indecency:
The excellent safety record of Transocean, in partnership with BP and Halliburton, last year cost 11 men their lives, polluted hundreds of miles of coastal wetlands and beaches and injured tens of thousands (at least) of sea creatures. One fears the consequences of a poor safety record.
By the way, a commission appointed by President Barack Obama earlier this year said the explosion was caused by a series of time and money-saving decisions by Transocean, BP and oil services company Halliburton Inc. that created an unacceptable amount of risk.
