Actually no, your Bhopal/Niger ruse was the circularity but I can see how you'd come around to thinking otherwise with those... proclivities of yours. Ahh well.

I wonder how low the stocks will go before they start to come back up... or before the company is taken over. Rumours of that already. Looks like the Arab money is propping up the company advance of a possible takeover by rivals.

That's the problem with these things. The names may change and a few new logos and slogans are dreamed up but the offenses, like sticky spilt crude, remain.
