(Actually around the office we have a less polite name, referencing a prominent Washingtonian who has made a spectacular career out of such portentous banalities.) Some entries had to be disqualified on grounds that they were too original and funny to soothe the Davos ear. Such as for example this one, posted in the comments by reader “Dante”: “The more you run over a dead cat, the flatter it gets.” Or this by Cheves Ligon: “Every single sentence in The Audacity of Hope .” Others sounded more like a press secretary practicing the arts of evasion. Reader “Carney” posted in the comments: “To be sure, the Mideast peace progress has ... market research, surveys and trends

That's when the depth of the Deepwater Horizon disaster became clear, when the only phone calls the veteran inshore guide got were from folks canceling their trips with him and two other guides working for A-Team Fishing Adventures. For a while, Abruscato -- who's fished around Dauphin Island for more than 40 years -- admits his thoughts were filled with worst-case scenarios and what they could mean for the area and fishing he loves. But over time he realized Alabama's coastal beaches and marshes would not be buried under a sheet of oil.
