Bonus gem

Welcome to Russia, Exxon (via NY Times):

"Commandos armed with assault rifles raided the offices of the British oil company BP on Wednesday, in one of the ritual armed searches of white-collar premises that are common enough here to have a nickname: masky shows (so-called because of the balaclavas the agents often wear, although this time they reportedly burst in bare-faced."

Maybe Rex Tillerson was right when he chose these particular words to tout the new Rosneft deal in his quote for the official Exxon press release:

"This agreement takes our relationship to a new level."
