Did somebody say oil?

The Center for Public Integrity, an investigative nonprofit founded by former 60 Minutes Producer Charles Lewis, released yesterday a special investigation they're calling "The Politics of Oil". Among the findings of the report are that oil is a big business (shocking!), they give lots of money to politics (gasp!), and Dick Cheney is just a sketchy as we have long suspected (no!). They also write about some 191 trips legislators enjoyed at the expense of the oil industry, which included trips to Hong Kong, London, Vail, NASCAR Races, and something called the "Wildcatter's Ball". Who knew!
