I don’t post on the weekend, but I for once am late to a very important story in oil.

My friend and WSJ reporter David Bird has been missing since last weekend.  I usually talk to him every week to recap some of the stories in the news and missed him this week without a second thought.

David has been a friend of mine since 2002 and to that, his writings have been a source of inspiration.  It’s from his “Energy Matters” columns that I developed a love for the irony of oil in the world.  He helped me become the writer of energy that I am today.

My prayers our out there for you David and I hope for your safe return.
