    Thanks for this, James.

    When I found out BPers were on the board of directors at Nalco yesterday, I lost it.

    Nalco. The fucking company that manufactures that deadly spray has on it's fucking board...Rodney F. Chase, a veteran of the British oil giant, who sits on the board of Nalco.

    Rep. John Hall (D-N.Y.) used some of his time in the House Transportation and Infrastructure hearing Wednesday to grill the head of BP America, Lamar McKay, over the company's choice of an oil dispersant that is rated as more toxic and less effective than several others.

    Hall noted that the company that makes the dispersant, Nalco Holding, has a former BP executive on its board. He was referring to Rodney F. Chase, a veteran of the British oil giant, who sits on the board of Nalco. Stock prices of Nalco rose on news that it was providing large quantities of the dispersant to be used in the spill.
