What Pickens is Pickin'
During his latest wheelings and dealings, T. Boone Pickens said no to coal. (Which makes Carl Pope, executive director of the Sierra Club, very happy on The Huffington Post today in an anti-coal piece datelined Dallas.) But Pickens also said yes to Halliburton (and a bunch of other stuff). Actually, I believe it's a "hell, yes" to Halliburton, to the tune of 1,292,636 shares all told. --Robert Wilonsky
