And I promise you I'll never desert you again because after 'Salome' we'll make another picture and another picture. You see, this is my life! It always will be! Nothing else! Just us, the cameras, and those wonderful people out there in the dark!... All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up.

-- Norma Desmond, 1950's "Sunset Boulevard"

I care about the small people. I hear comments sometimes that large oil companies are greedy companies or don't care, but that is not the case at BP. We care about the small people.

-- BP chairman president Carl-Henric Svanberg, speaking today at the White House.

The people are big, Mr. Svanberg. It's the corporate leaders who got small.

Steve Martin has more.
