Ah, the good old days... - A little less than a happy high

Ah, the good old days...
Just in case you were wondering, these are the folks who were awarded several lucrative contracts in the reconstruction of Iraq without a competitive bid process by Dubya and his boys. Old news, granted, but I figured it was worth mentioning again in the face of evidence that Halliburton’s KBR subsidiary is engaging in price gouging in their expanded role supplying fuel to the US military. It always warms the heart to see good old-fashioned opportunism at work.

In ancient Rome, those responsible would have been butchered and then fed to the dogs.

if i remember correctly, there is a particularly interesting torture which consists of putting the accused in a bag with two cats (if I remember correctly) and tossing the whole thing into the river. I may be wrong, though... but it sounds like a nice death.

Honestly, I didn't dig that deep for my example. I seem to recall something very much like what you're describing, and think it would be a fine fate for those responsible.

Sadly, we live in "kinder and gentler" times.
