damn Halliburton

It's hardly original to find Halliburton a distasteful company. But today I found yet another reason. I am near the end of Imperial Life in the Emerald City, and I just read of the cats. Inside the green zone there actually is wildlife, mostly unnoticed. A biologist hired for another purpose did notice it, as he also noticed the occasional feral cat and kittens. Residents of the green zone started to "adopt" these cats. They sneaked food for them, brought them inside, took care of them when they could. But Halliburton officials had another idea. They thought the cats were a danger, that they would spread disease. Never mind that they had no proof of this. The biologist disagreed with their conclusions, said that if they did pose any danger it was infinitesimal. But no matter. Halliburton directed the marines to hunt down and kill every last one. It was undoubtedly like the bible story of the killing of the infants. People tried to hide them but the marines busted in and got them.
