Blah Blah Blah

It seems the caring folks at BP have thoughtfully set up a Call
Center so frantic citizens can vent - and not get through to "the big
people" who really matter. A report
at a Houston TV station finds that the 100 operators answering calls
serve as a pointless screen, and often don't even take notes. Likewise, BP
is still barring
media from covering the havoc they've wreaked, denials notwithstanding.
Get these people in jail, please.

"We take all your information and then we have nothing to give
them,
nothing to give them. (Operators) just put down, type ‘blah blah blah.'"

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site.
