Hayward is becoming the man Americans love to hate. I've never seen someone with such a bullseye on him. He seems remarkably dim-witted about putting his best PR foot forward, as he not only famously expressed wanting "his life back," but after a day of incommunicative "I don't know" Capitol Hill testimony, he attended a weekend yacht match. Talk about fiddling while Rome burns. Idiot move.
Meanwhile a Hollywood film critic gives as smart an assessment of the oil crisis as anyone. All hail Roger Ebert.
