...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

Dirty List

Thanks to Easy Bake Coven for the heads up about the Dirty List. Released today, it names of companies that continue to do business with the terrifyingly horrible government of Burma:

"The 'Dirty List' exposes companies who are directly or
indirectly helping to finance one of the most brutal regimes
in the world," said John Jackson, Director of Burma Campaign
UK. "Foreign investment and trade can benefit developing
countries, but in Burma it helps finance a regime that uses
rape, torture and murder to oppress its own people."

Unfortunately, the list targets primarily British companies. I'd like to see the American list. Or maybe I wouldn't.
