Just a few weeks after 55-year-old charter boat captain William Allen Kruse was hired by BP to help with the oil spill cleanup that threatened his livelihood and community, he killed himself. A deckhand who worked for Kruse said working as one of BP's "vessels of opportunity" was a stressful and confusing experience. "We're helping cover up the lie," a 27-year-old colleague of Kruse told The Washington Post. "We're burying ourselves. We're helping them cover up the lie that's putting us out of work."

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
