THE BEVERLY SPILLBILLIES

Broken window fallacy aside, what attracted me to this story was the usage of the word "spillionaire." Did you know that "spillionaire" first originated with the Exxon Valdez spill? Huh.

"There are probably companies or people who became 'oil spill' experts in the Gulf of Mexico the day the spill happened," said Miller, owner of the New York-based Miller Environmental Group, which was founded in 1971. "The 'spillionaire' term, which originated with the Exxon Valdez spill, was more geared towards the instant expert and instant contractor that capitalized on that event and really didn't come with the real structure and capability and experience."
