Friend and former Scene colleague Matt Pulle was combing the archives earlier today and found a stellar piece of journalism I penned in 1999, the perfect companion to this breathtakingly insightful bit about Diane Black, parts of which are now being used in her campaign ad.
The subject: British Petroleum. Here's an excerpt:
"Easily the most meticulous, intelligent and responsible energy company in the world. Their devotion to the environment and to safe oil drilling is without rival. Recently, I met a few of BP's executives at the Palm for a power lunch. I was most impressed by their sincerity, their humility and, finally, their competence. They're honorable, each and every one. I trust them. So should you."
