Winners and Winners

I'm not sure what this says about me, but since the Katrina disaster I've been thinking about the work of cleaning and re-building the region and who will do the work. The answer was in the Observer with the news that the Republicans favourite company, i.e. Halliburton have won some of the biggest contracts. While I understand someboday has to undertake the work, this is the company that has strong connections to vie-president Dick Cheney, and that's been accused of getting contracts in Iraq without competition and then ripping off the government by increasing prices.
