Ken Lay is dead

CNN: Enron founder Ken Lay has died in Aspen, Colorado, a spokesman for Lay's family said today. Lay was awaiting sentencing after being found guilty of conspiracy and fraud.

Latest I heard was massive coronary.

Re: Ken Lay is dead

Wasn't he the one that said in an interview that he was contemplating suicide also?

Re: Ken Lay is dead

Can't say that upsets me in anyway. Almost makes me smile...except for the fact he won't get to rot in jail for any time.

Though it's almost impossibly hard to understand that case, if even a small part of what he was found guilty of is true...that scumbag ruined thousands of people's lives.

Re: Ken Lay is dead

You're just pissed because they were large contributors to the creation of SOX.

Re: Ken Lay is dead

CIA got him. The Bush administration was worried about what he'd say to reduce his sentence.

The democrats are demanding that he be cloned so he can serve his time and so they can get that all-important picture of him in the jail jumpsuit.

I like your thinking.

There's a documentary out called "The Smart Guys" or something like that I think, but I just can't get myself to watch it (pay per view) because I know I'll be pissed at the end. Spend $4.00 to get pissed off? But, a part of me wants to know more about those evil pricks and what they did to those thousands of workers.

I highly recommend the book "Conspiracy of Fools".

Absolutely. It's very well-written and difficult to "put down". I was expecting a boring account of the shady financial details, but it reads like a, dare I say, suspenseful thriller.

are you a shadow writer for Mr Moore?

While he was a convicted criminal I wish no more evil on him than what he would have been sentenced to. While he did ruin lives most of those severely impacted were in the position to get because of greed. Good practices would have minimized the exposure to company stock thus reducing the impact from his criminal actions.

Must obey the sheep dog
