Ken Lay Is Dead.

Enron founder Ken Lay, perhaps the greatest example of a corporate pirate in the modern era, as well as head of the Bush 2000 transition team, has died in his vacation home in Colorado. You know, the kind of place his employees can't afford because he ripped them off in a stock scam.

It's a shame that he exited this life without ever having known justice. He was convicted last month, and was awaiting sentence, which I can only hope would have been a long one.

Rot in hell, Kenny Boy.

You can click here to see warm, glowing correspondence between the modern day Blackbeard and George W. Bush, half of which is written on State of Texas letterhead. Lay was Bush's benefactor in every way. You might even say that he was the consigliere of the Bush Crime Family.

Un-fricking-believable.

Let the conspiracy theory begin.

There will be no surprise at brassmask.com if it comes out that he committed suicide.

One of my emailers has suggested that it will be interesting to see if Mrs. Lay moves out of the country and marries another man, who has lots of scars from plastic surgery!

Brass,

I wouldn't be surprised either.

Cracker,

I think Lay's last marriage was more of a business transaction--- She was his secretary, and he needed her covered under spousal privilege. So I expect her to take her severance pay and go someplace nice.

Jeff,

That's what I get for posting without checking everywhere first. I sat down to write something yesterday, opened up another browser window to look something up, and there it was.
