So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookshelf on the wall.Roald Dahl
Diane is now following Katrina's reviews
Diane is 60% done with Sons of Wichita: "Spills happen in the oil business, but the scope of Koch's violations and the company's disregard for the environmental consequences attracted scrutiny...Many of the spills occurred in remote areas and were never reported to authorities... employees were instructed to cover up the extent of accidents by using techniques like 'wheel watching' or to cover it up with soil if it was on land."
