What Am I Missing?
In all the sad stories about the poor little rich boy who wants his life back, Tony Hayward, CEO of BP, has been excoriated and vilified ad nauseum by people who need to shake a stick at something. But those who expect him to get fired, to lose his livelihood as have so many others because of BP's clumsiness at great depths, are making it too easy. If the whole idea is to fire Hayward, then we first have to believe that if only he had not been at the helm of the rig, if only someone better, smarter, more aware, nicer, had been there instead, then none of this would have happened.
I don't buy that.
