(I once had a visitor to this blog who came from a Halliburton domain, but that's neither here nor there.)
Did you see the opening sketch from SNL? Dick Cheney and his wife were reading aloud their Valentine cards. One was from "your friends at Halliburton" and it included a gift card to Barnes and Noble for $500,000. Hardy-har-har. I thought that was pretty funny.
What would you buy at Barnes and Noble for $500,000? I would buy subscriptions to 40,000-50,000 magazines.
