Meet the Press and oil/coal [18 Jun 2006|03:52pm]

I just finished watching Meet the Press from this morning, which featured three oil company CEOs trying to explain why they are not jerks and their companies gougers.

Probably not coincidentally, there were a few ads about coal and oil during the show. Unfortunately I saw them, since I've been tweaking my MythTV commercial-skipping setup and it's not working real well at the moment.

Yeah, by the way, apparently BP stands for "beyond petroleum". I nearly snarfed my coffee, but I guess if it's true, more power to them.

So, a couple of these ads directed viewers to the web site learnaboutcoal.org. I thought I'd check it out.

We are sorry, it appears that you currently do not meet this sites technology requirements. This is easliy remedied. Read blow to see what you need to enbale.

I didn't think that "blow" was something one read.

I'm glad these people don't know how to make a web site, or spell, or use punctuation.
