Out of the Blue

My apologies for the tardy update this morning/afternoon. I attended a party last night for a friend's birthday, and in the grand tradition of July 4th eating contests, proceeded to set some sort of record for Scotch consumption, which has derailed my day. I'm not proud of that, it was very unprofessional (but I apparently do look stunning with a lampshade on my head).

Scenarios like this and many many more happened because of this individual and I have no problem wishing only agony on this sorry human being.


Still doesn't constitute justification for a painful death. We all know what happened at Enron, the results therein. His painful death is suppose to be a punishment? For what? He's dead. Doesn't change the fact the scandal occured and hundreds of people suffered because of him.

While he certainly deserved to make financial restitution I don't think he deserved to die in a particularly painful way.

really? suppose it had been your parents who got screwed out of their life savings? Suppose you owned a business whose capital had been invested with Enron and caused it to go bankrupt? Scenarios like this and many many more happened because of this individual and I have no problem wishing only agony on this sorry human being. Its people like Lay and his ilk that the "trckle down" theory of economics doesn't work and working class families are pushed farther away from an acceptable standard of living every year.

They can show a hundred pictures of him with his family, many more of him doing "charitable work" (how many of these guys would be so generous if the tax breaks for donations were to go away overnight?) and whatever spin they want to put on this old scumbag claiming he "didn't deserve it". IMO he died too fast. I wish he wouldve died in jail with a large black inmate laying on Kens wrinkled mole-ridden back , spent, whispering sweet nothings into his ear as his (Lays) heart skipped its last few beats.

Of course another conspiracy is that he is dead, but not accidentally.

Personally I like the theory that the recent N Korea rocket launches were a cover up to put Kenny boy into his secret moon base, where he could swim through his money in a giant vault, Duck Tales style!!

I hope the pain in his chest was of the crushing and most painful kind. I hope he was wide awake and terrified. I hope the realization of his end made him feel for the hundreds of lives he destroyed.

That karma is a real bitch yo'......

HA! Over @ /, someone suggested Lay faked his death, too...

I am sure lots of people are going to think this. Even if you do not it is only sane to question it and verify he truly is dead and not just trying to escape the country with all his money.

Mostly this post was to just test new .sig
