I am not familiar with those. Which hotels are they in?

BP was NOT his major contributor. This stems from those who half-read
articles and pass them on as fact.
BP's largest contribution of $71K was to Obama.

I work with a fellow who is a straight-up genius, one of those one in a
thousand guys who is highly productive at everything he turns his hand
to. If you ask him even a seemingly simple question, he pauses for a few
minutes, and then says, "well there are several aspects to that. Did
you mean this, or did you mean that, or this other thing, or some
combination...?" His question about your question will cause you to
rethink things in ways you hadn't even considered.
So, I know what smart is. I also know that my friend is nothing like the
people I've run into who make a point of going of their way to say

"In no part of the constitution is more wisdom to be found,
than in the clause which confides the question of war or peace
to the legislature, and not to the executive department."
