So here’s a shocker: a group called Corporate Accountability International has inducted Halliburton into its annual Hall of Shame competition. According to the press release, “The membership organization, which wages winning campaigns against irresponsible and dangerous corporate actions, opened online voting in May with five other potential inductees: Coke, Ford, Kimberly-Clark, Merck and Nestlé.” Now, without those companies, we wouldn’t be able to wash down our black-market Vioxx with a cold, refreshing Fresca while driving our Focuses to the store for Crunch bars and Kotex. So I don’t know what they’re bitching about. Maybe it’ll make more sense if you look at the results here . -- Craig Malisow
