Reporter asks: Are BP executives from outer space?

Tom McLaughlin of the Daily News writes on his blog about how BP's Bryant Chapman handled the town hall meetings in Okaloosa and Walton counties. If it weren't so sad, it would be highly amusing watching BP executives in action. For example, at a meeting in Okaloosa County, BP vice [...]

Could BP default on loans?

Bondsquawk.com reports that investors believe there is a higher probability of BP defaulting within one year than in five. BP was spending $6 million a day when the spill began, but that cost has soared to $100 million a day as the slick has spread and efforts to cap the leaking well have [...]
