I think we're all forgetting something here.

The eleven men who died will receive no compensation, even though their claims are about as "legitimate" as they get. BP is going to use that adjective to screw the guys whose businesses they destroyed, whose environment they destroyed, and whose lives they killed.

It will be just like the Exxon Valdez.

And here's how the Supreme Court, who says that corporations are people too, decided to screw the little guy.

Some are dead, and died without compensation of any variety.

"They're going to be hurt. Those people are going to be suffering because their economy is going to be shot for a year or so," he said. "It took 20 years before the final round was played out with Exxon, in terms of lawsuits, and then they cut back the initial amount. Not many people got much. A lot of people in 20 years have died, lost their boats and permits. It just really screwed up a lot of people's lives."

At least Louisiana knows what's coming.
