Ken Lay is dead... yeah, so...

One of my co-workers barged into my office today and said, "Ken Lay is dead!"
I started laughing uncontrollably.
And, my co-worker's jaw dropped to the floor, "How can you laugh at a man's death?"
I replied, "Like this... BAW-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!"

I was promptly scolded and lectured on forgiveness and the value of all human life.

I told my co-worker this...
"Ken Lay stole millions and millions of dollars from thousands of people. People that believed in him and believed in Enron. People who worked for decades to build retirement nest eggs, with plans to spend their final years of life comfortably. People who were going to put grandkids through college with their savings, People who were going to travel the world with their savings. And he and his boy Skillings stole their money and lived a life of hedonistic luxury with it. That bastard won't get jail time and I don't really think that's fair, but that's okay because Karma is a bitch and fate has had the last laugh! Now get the hell out of my office!"

He wouldn't have done real jail time anyway, he would have been set up in a nice country club with locking gates for a few years. Yeh he is dead...good riddance. He needs to take his buddies in Washington with him.

Yeah I agree! It would have just worked out too well for him. He would have loss about 15 pounds, took 3 strokes off of game, improved his putting and probably written a book or two. My only problem now is the fact that some kind of legal philosophy [I forget what its called] will technically wash his conviction away because he died before he was sentenced. Now the victims of his theft will have a harder time sueing his estate. I sure hope they good lawyers!!! Thanks for dropping a comment!
