Like V2 bombs and Tyrone Slothrop, the island nation of São Tomé has gotten things slightly out of order. In particular, even though no oil has been actually produced (Chevron drilled but came up dry), they already have a full blown oil corruption scandal in the works. Its a good one too with a dirty US congressman (William Jefferson), global crusader Jeffery Sachs, and a Texas firm fronted by a pal of Ousegun Obasanjo, the ex-ruler of Nigeria.
