This is what I heard while listening to NPR on my way to work this morning...
Exxon Mobil just received their quarterly earning report. They made a RECORD SETTING amount of 11.7 billion dollars in the last 3 months, and they were DISAPPOINTED. They had expected to make A LOT more.
This record amount came despite the fact that they paid millions of dollars to a law suit for the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill, and after a productivity loss in other countries (such as Venezuela).
I know I may sound repetitive, but seriously DOES THIS BOTHER ANYONE BUT ME?
