Watching the Watchers

President Bush's popularity sits at a record low point, but Congress is even less popular. It seems we don't like the job they are doing (or not doing). An unpopular war is one answer, but I'm sure we all have our own dissatisfactions. It turns out that reality is more work than what a thirty second TV attack ad implies...

Meanwhile, the oil industry is upset about the sudden interest in bio-fuel and other gasoline alternatives. Many of the industry leaders have decided to scale back plans to increase refinery capacity. This looks dirty for the same reason it's a sound business decision, lower refining capacity drives up prices. And there in a nutshell is why I don't really like the way we do business these days.
