18.7 billion dollars, the largest environmental fine ever paid by a single company in U.S. history, etc. Hold your applause until after you see http://goo.gl/5PSPbc , wherein we learn BP made reported 4.13 billion dollars in profit between January and March 2015 alone, which lines up with http://goo.gl/6sYq6R where we learn BP made reported 13.4 billion dollars' profit in 2013. So, this 18.7 billion dollar fine is roughly 15 months' profit. Basically a mosquito bite on BP's elbow.
BP has reached an $18.7bn (£12bn) settlement with the US Department of Justice following the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

+Terry Walker Yes, a negotiated settlement, which is all the more sickening. "So, ah, we were thinking we'd ask you how much you want to pay, then we could, like, haggle. You know. If you want."

... I don't want to borrow words from anti-democracy Nietzsche followers with severe Oedipal complexes.

In Georgia there was a Confederate flag rally-thing the other day with lifted pickup trucks 'n' all. The video's not interminable, it only seems that way until 1:07 when one dravver really gets into the spirit of the part that goes "Look awayyyyyy, look awayyyyyy, look awayyyyyy, Dixieland". In the foreground, Shurf Roscoe P. Coltrane can be seen responding.

Brandon - the identification on the police car indicated this was Dalton, GA, about 1.5 hours NW of Atlanta.
My brother lives in nearby Calhoun. I'm not surprised at all by this display. This is a region of many carpet mills that has become bedroom suburbs of Atlanta over the past 15 years despite the distance...

I am alarmed and dismayed to see American-style blithering Republicanism taking root in BC and in Canada at large. 
Mayor Gregor Robertson was blunt in his assessment Thursday of what it will take to fund planned improvements to transportation in Vancouver and the region. “On funding there is no plan B,” he . . .

... (actually your mass transit system appears to work remarkably well given its coverage — which didn’t look comprehensive to me, as an outsider, and is fairly pricey, though not compared with the cost of owning a car in a city). Traffic during rush hour was like NYC traffic during a good mid-day.

I was not aware of this site until just now. Looks very highly useful. http://www.donotlink.com/

+CM Harrington I don't think it's intended primarily as a link shortener like tinyurl or bit.ly. I use those all the time and don't worry much about what happens if either of them will go away; link rot is link rot, and it's only a big concern in limited circumstances. As to whether it's effective: Donno; Shirley you know more than I about how these things work. Their "about" page is http://www.donotlink.com/dnl/faq .

+Tony Berno Guy Fieri is a Sonoma Cty native, and has a home or two there and a restaurant too I think.  I think on the Sonoma valley side though.

This is a print ad from Land Rover. Embiggen it. The caption in the lower left corner reads "Please don't text and drive".

Breathtaking, but not at all surprising.

2013 was a difficult year for my car. Some dillweed tried to steal it, leaving it with a broken door handle, carved-up steering column, and sheetmetal damage. KP's fixed it fully and neatly. Then a few months later, some other dillweed kicked the car with a heavy boot or something, judging by what I saw when I went to drive it one morning. Again KP's did a super job to a high standard of craftsmanship. The work wa done on time, with clear communication and a functional courtesy car. My car came back to me cleaned and tidied inside and out. Obviously I hope never again to need auto body "dental" work—nobody ever looks forward to such a need—but if I do, I'm going straight back to KP's.
