Vice President Dick Cheney's time of allowing major corporations to pillage America's assets undisturbed is almost (but not almost enough) over. Do not fret for the bad hunter, though. Halliburton, where he worked before, had a great year and probably can find a closet or a country where Dick can put a desk or pine over wars he almost, but not quite, got started.
From Rigzone, an oil industry newsletter:
Halliburton reported that revenue was $15.3 billion for the full year 2007, an increase of 18% from the full year 2006, and operating income was $3.5 billion, an increase of 8% from the full year 2006.
