Interior Secretary Renames Office of Mineral Management Services


The government agency whose coziness with big oil has been blamed for the catastrophic Deepwater Horizon spill is getting its own PR makeover. It will now be known as the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement, or Bureau of Ocean Energy (BOE) for short. The change was ordered by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who, unfortunately, doesn’t get to change his name. [Washington Wire/WSJ]
