Anyone else smell that greed?

Exxon's $10B net a U.S. corporate record -- does anyone else smell all that greed in the oil industry? And hey, Exxon's profits were HINDERED by losses in their chemicals division. Gotta love that 75% profit improvement. I guess I was right to feel abused when I saw the gas prices at the pump.

You know, I think Penny Arcade did a comic on a similar issue.

Thanks a lot, BT

This morning at work we had an urgent meeting to inform us that as a reward for our year of hard work and sacrifice, 14 more people would be laid off. And this time it's my turn. I can't say that I'm too surprised: there aren't many people left to cut, and we certainly can't expect vital people like vice presidents and HR to take a hit.

So, if you know anyone who needs a Unix admin/Perl programmer/public speaker/writer, my email address is above.

A.T. Hun comments: He also makes a mighty fine hen teaser. This must be a great day for everyone. I had to have my dog put to sleep this morning.

J.t.Qbe comments: Sorry to hear about your mutt, A.T. You can have ours if you want. Hey, how about a nice couple of Bieren this evening? If I were there, I'd let you buy me a few.
