Don't rush to judgment

From what I can tell, BP is taking a lot of responsibility for the accident.

Ignore the man behind the curtain

The notion of hiding the truth is such an interesting phenomenon that some leaders pick up along the way. Actually, I don't think it's something they pick up. Rather, it is something they lose -- their integrity.

The buck stops here

BP is ultimately responsible for the spill. But our own regulatory agencies also have to make sure that we have the right rules in place.

Coming clean

Open and honest communication is not always the easiest approach, but it is certainly the most appreciated.

Own It

When bad things happen, there is no substitute for telling the truth, telling it again, telling it often and as completely as possible.

A stain on the Earth

Hayward could have stepped free of his role as corporate mercenary. He could have saved BP's image and gained the world's empathy and support. Instead, he appears like our leaders on Wall Street: culpable, witless, and sociopathic.

A shameful response

BP's reputation has all but been destroyed, not by the spill itself but by the way they have handled it.

Under a white-hot spotlight

We like to think that a lot of things get better with age, but mostly that applies to just wine and cheese.

A class act

The former first lady has a lot of ideas and personal convictions, but she chose to keep them to herself, until now.

No shouting needed

Laura Bush was a great asset to the nation and certainly to her beleaguered husband.

Strong and successful

Somehow, the media chooses to focus on making Laura Bush uncomfortable, more intent on igniting gossip than appreciating her significant accomplishments.

Laura's choice

Public figures do not owe the public the spectacle of every salacious and boring detail of their personal lives. We have the Palin family for those who like oversharing.
