Today’s “Daily Bizcard” design, “Thank You Sir”, goes to BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg, who’s having, shall we say, one bitch of a week.

Of course the current oil slick is horrendous. In spite of that, I’m no more one of those anti-big-oil people than I was before.

At the end of the day, oil is dirty, nasty, dangerous stuff to get out of the ground. And every now and then, sadly, we are reminded of this. “Cut down our dependence on oil”? If that lever existed, we’d have pulled it long ago. Don’t get me started…

[Carl-Henric, please send me an e-mail at email@example.com with your shipping address and the details you want on the back of the bizcard, and I’ll send a free box of 100 to you. Thanks!]
