    The quote above was from memory.. here's the actual quote:

    The ringing in your ears an hour or two ago wasn't just the alarm clock by your bed. It was a wake-up call for everyone in your business.

    The headlines of refinery worker injuries and deaths on the job and of OSHA's stepped-up inspections are sounding an alarm about an industry-wide problem -- a problem that we are obliged to address.

    Bluntly speaking: Your workers are dying on the job and it has to stop.

    This was said at the NPRA National Safety Conference.  I can guarantee you that they haven't been spoken to like that in quite a while... say, the past eight years at a minimum.

    "Salvation for a race, nation or class must come from within. Freedom is never granted; it is won. Justice is never given; it is exacted." A. Phillip Randolph
