    "I think it's ironic that Nader is disavowing any personal responsibility in this situation, because this is a guy who built his career and reputation by critiquing others for not being responsible for ALL the effects, intended or not, of their actions."

    Part of what drives me crazy about Nader--and thank you to the folks who noticed that there is a subtext to the piece, and that maybe I'm not just writing about Nader--but what drives me crazy about him is exactly the irony (or hypocrisy) of him not taking responsibility after doing more than any single individual to make corporate responsibility a foundational principal (if not always a primary value) of the American system of justice.  

    Maybe he can only conceptualize responsibility in terms of corporations, but not of individuals?  Who knows.
