Getting His Life Back
Disgraced BP CEO Tony Hayward was forced to step down from his position at Big Polluter, effective October 1. As information seeps out about BP's corner-cutting and willful violations of safety regulations, it's obvious that Hayward was comfy with the rule-averse, bottom-line driven corporate culture at BP.
In a delicious twist, BP is assigning Hayward to (bwahahaha) its Russian projects to a "non-executive board position." We wonder if he can adapt to those cold Siberian winters, so far from his sailboat.
