The Third Thing

It’s Father’s Day two months after the worst oil spill in history, and though the site is still pouring thousands of gallons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico every hour, BP chief executive Tony Hayward is on holiday, racing his yacht on the other side of the Atlantic. As a hurricane hits, though, Tony’s nowhere to be found, and his wife and daughters quickly learn the only thing more slippery than oil is a family on vacation.
