19. Brown and Root was more than a home state company, it was a transnational megacorp.
My dad worked for B&R. He was an petrochemical engineer and an executive with a number of firms like B&R, Fluor, Parsons, etc.

You make it sound like a hometown hardware store. It was a sprawling, criminal organization that bribed governments, paid for illegal CIA operations, helped overthrown democratically elected governments, used child and slave labor in some parts of the world...

And they owned Lyndon B. Johnson. Owned him.
