No comment here, except to note that Newsdesk.org first covered this story in 2002 (both the Unocal and Chevron angles), reprised it in 2004, and even did a loosey-goosey blog-style overview last week, given the Myanmar crackdown.
So, finally, the SF Chronicle notices there’s an elephant in the living room — or anyway, an oil company (or two) in its backyard (Chevron is based in SF, and Unocal just west of the city in San Ramon) — that’s linked to a front-page story on democracy and repression in Southeast Asia:

San Francisco Chronicle, October 4, 2007
And you know what?
It’s a good article.
Better late than never.
