Thanks Cal for the link to the article. The Vale corporation seems to be bent on destroying everything that stands in it's way of making a profit. Read and angrily noted.

Why must everything come down to financial profit? Everything is for sale including our morallity and integrity. It's because of exterme greed and the constant advertizing that all that matters is material wealth. Weve become a horrible society!!
