Art, politics, angels, demons . . . and righteous dogs.


Does the fact that BP is still in charge of the rescue and clean-up of the Spill seem, at this point a bit strange?  Is it a little like asking John Wilkes Booth to be Lincoln’s doctor?

    Good morning Steve. I wish it was out of whack but after watching, “Capitalism – A Love Story”, for the first time last night, I’d have to say no, it’s not surprising at all. We are being screwed in the name of $$$ and the screwing is happening across the board at the intersection of corporatism and politics. Obama is starting to seem a bit strange with his statements of anger and outrage while BP continues to thrash about in splendid isolation in the Gulf.

    But overall, the larger picture is that the corporations call the shots and the politicians can point and splutter all day long, but in the end, they march to the tune that the corporations and their bagmen and their armies of lawyers are playing.

    Hi Steve. It may just be me but I tried the “Oil Painting” link and it didn’t work.
