Grilling Enron, whold you like a beer with that?

Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling got skewered! Every tv station in Houston had reporter at the courthouse waiting for the cue to run to get on camera first with the verdict. From 11:00 am till for ever each channel had a reporter talking and talking and talking about it. They talked to jury members, they talked to passers-by, they talked to former employees. Ok, ok. Put a fork in them, they're done. Now we have to wait for sentencing which will be Sept.11th. How's that for a day to remember? They are already planning appeals. Funny how Ken Lay could not leave the courthouse until he turned in his passport to the judge. Supposedly he left it home... From Enron Field to Minute Maid Park. One of the YMCA centers will consider removing Ken Lay's name from it's building. Guess Ken wont be throwing out the first pitch at any Astros games for a while. One question- Lay and Skilling could be sentenced to over 100 years each, how come murders and child molestors dont get sentences like that?

They still do not think they did anything wrong. See what arogance and power does to a person.

Too bad they don't do the electric chair anymore. Now that would take crime and punishment to new ironic levels.

Excellent point. As bad as these 2 thieves are, I think murderers & pedophiles are worse. Why don't the laws keep the violent predators locked away or, dare I say it, yes I will... DEAD!
