Quote of the Day

"Since that accident, this is the first chance I have had to address such a large gathering of industry colleagues and the first thing I want to say is that I am sorry for what happened."BP CEO Bob Dudley, "addressing the largest oil industry gathering since the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico last spring."

Someone more cynical than I, ahem, might suggest that delivering that apology to a group of his fellow oil executives gives the impression he's apologizing for inconveniencing them with bad press for their industry, and not apologizing for the actual, ya know, environmentally devastating spill.
