Koch's coke, Christie's milk & Kurker's fuel oil

Looking over the recent blog entries on cctoday I was struck with this prescient one which we published on Labor Day by Spyro Mitrokostas wherein he describes the distress some plutocrats have at others making their kind of money;

"Labor Day on Cape Cod"

As I was looking out over Great Island, I heard one of those obnoxious ads by the Alliance (to save the view for the privileged few) on the radio, repeating the lies about the birds, the fish and the air, but mostly hocking their new tactic; Cape Wind stands to make a profit from the project!

Kurker complainingSo now it's about profits. Isn't it strange that this has come down to the capitalists from Osterville, and may I say uber-capitalists, objecting to the capitalist from Bass River making too much money. Didn't Egan make too much money selling computers? Didn't Koch make too much money selling, well, coke? For that matter, isn't Mihos making too much money selling gas and milk? And how about Kurker (on left) making too much money selling boats?

I think what the capitalists from Osterville object to most, is that the capitalist from Bass River is making too much money in their backyard. I bet that's what grates them the most. It would be better if they were the ones doing the profiting.  To read the rest click  "Labor Day on Cape Cod".
