Better Off Dead: Kenneth Lay

Well, Enron's Kenneth Lay is dead. He died before he served even one day of jail time. I think it's a sign of how much damage Kenneth Lay did that it seems like he got away with it. Death is literally too good for Lay. All I wanted was one day in prison. One day where there was no one there to cater to his every whim. No fancy meals, no cushy seats, no exotic countries, no plush beds. I mean, the guy died in his frickin' home in Aspen. I just hope the heart attack was painful. And I hope it was brought on by stress. Severe, agonizing stress at the thought of going to jail. Scumbag.

Wow. I'll admit I was sorry someone didn't have to pay the piper for that whole thing, but saying "death is too good for him" is a stretch for me. Lay was a jerk alright, but hardly comparable to Jeffrey Dahmer or something like that. Although he did eat people alive at least he had the curtesy of sending out a press release telling how it tasted.

That's funny...but when you consider that he bankrupted hundreds of people, destroyed a billion-dollar company, and never even so much as apologized, I think he got off easy.
