E&P Companies

They drill baby drill Black gold no longer golden Jed Clampett goes home

Just Shoot Me

Colt dome in Hartford
Gold leafing peeling away

Icarus Flies Again

AMR-US
If you fail and fail and fail
Is fourth time the charm?

Chinese company
US public bondholders
Welcome to Wuxi

Number 42
Is now 43 years old
Makes Jeter look young

AMR-US

Two troubled airlines

When I sold my Apple shares

No one answering my calls
Dog days of Summer

Lowest payroll, kicking ass

The Cardinals chose
Young Joe Garagiola
The Yanks got Yogi
