Re: Dirty Money
So you might've heard that TXU has been sold to Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and the Texas Pacific Group. This leaves Guv Rick Perry's plan for coal-fired plants more up in the air than, well, a bunch of coal-fired carcinogens. But theBillionaires for Coal
don't seem too worried about this latest development.
"The Hoi Polloi should not be so quick to celebrate," says Philip MePockets. "KKR's vow to become 'customer-centric' is a mere ration of bread and circuses for the unwashed. Frequent nightlong poker games with Governor GoodHair ensure that, in the end, we will be sootcessful. All power will soon come from coal. Horseless carriages and even those ghastly Metro buses will sport beautifully belching smokestacks. The future is voluminous and bituminous!"
In this era of corporate responsibility, we wouldn't expect anything less. — Keith Plocek
