Kenneth Lay Dies

I'll tell you one thing...when I die I hope my obit doesn't say "Died in awful shame." Boy do I ever. Right now, I feel like I'm running a 60-40 chance. You decide which way I'm leaning.

I heard a few people around my office say he took the easy way out. If he's as firm a believer in God as he claimed, I'd wager he was happy to go. Everyone knows what God does to, you know, liars and cheats and swindlers.

Puts them in Office. I wonder if you can be CEO of the Heaven Corporation.

I guess we do know how "god" rewards liars and cheats - makes them president of the United States of America.

But one of the many reasons I don't believe in god.

When my father was trying to look on the bright side of a truly awful day, he would always say "Any day is a good day as long as it doesn't end with you dead or indicted".

He may have ended one day dead a few months ago, but Ken Lay takes the taco: ending up simultaneously dead and indicted.
