A lot of people have been wondering, why the studied silence from Toxic Cocktail, with all this Occupy Wall Street stuff going on around the world? Is it a massive media conspiracy? Well, no, it's not that. It's just that after much thought, I can't deny that the official beverage of Occupy is beer. It's the drink of the people. It's the drink that can double as a meal. And it's the drink that doesn't totally screw up your commitment to peaceful protest.

-Portland General Electric is setting aside $12.6 million for decommissioning costs

Hess LNG is pulling out of its project in Fall River, Mass. The market just isn't there for imported natural gas, they said. This one never really had a chance. It was a logistical nightmare and was opposed by powerful people like John Kerry and Barney Frank. It scared a lot of people, and now that it's officially off the table, I want to thank it for strengthening the anti-LNG movement.
