Mr. David J. O’Reilly
Chairman of the Board
6001 Bollinger Canyon Road
San Ramon, CA 94583
Dear Mr. O’Reilly,
You’re not related to the famous Fox TV star, Bill O’Reilly, are you?
I noticed you took Condoleezza Rice’s name off the oil tanker and renamed it, the Altair Voyager. I was sorry to hear that, but it’s perfectly understandable--politics! I guess the Bush Administration didn’t want people thinking that Condoleezza Rice had anything to do with all the human rights violations you’ve been accused of. Did Gale Norton have anything to do with this decision?
Do you think once she returns to the private sector, you’ll name another oil tanker after her? Who is Altair, anyway?
