BP Chief Steps Down

May 1, 2007

See story here.

Now, don’t get me wrong– I’m not saying I particularly like any given oil company.

But as far as oil companies go, now maybe I get why BP has always been my favorite.  The CEO is gay.  Maybe that’s why he is more forward thinking than other oil company CEOs (again, its all relative) and actually says things that are common sense to the rest of us like, “We will run out of oil someday and we need to find alternative sources of energy.”

At a salary like any Global 500 company executive makes, it is hard to feel sorry for a corporate executive or to say he is the victim of injustice.

But one does wonder if he would feel compelled to step down if the person who wrote the tell-all was a woman whether or not he would have felt so compelled to resign.
