No big surprise here. All they care about is the amount of filthy lucre they can accumulate in their already morbidly obese bank accounts - and the environment and the common people be effed.

I wonder if any charities are bestowed anything from their wealthy coffers.

Noted. Thanks, Judy.
Nothing like corporate greed. I hope the activist shareholders are successful in their campaign. But, I haven't heard what the outcome was.

I agree, Freya. Shirley, I would say they might donate to get a tax write-off.
