HuffingtonPost carried this link to a Washington Post story. My reaction--how terribly obscene. But then sweetheart deals between the U.S. government and major companies usually are.
Stephen Salisbury published a guest post on Tomdispatch this morning that shows a different obscenity in modern American life but ties into the theme of sweetheart deals between governments and big companies. Interesting how the 'government of the people, by the people, and for the people' acts most often to protect corporate interests against the interests of the people. And how much the interests of the government have diverged from those of its supposed constituency.
