Bye bye, Kenny-boy.

The friends I have who lost boatloads on the Enron debacle have all said in the past to me, to a man (and woman), that they don't really care whether or not Lay, Skilling, Fastow et al go to jail -- nothing will compensate them for their losses.

Today, they're sounding a different tune. They're glad the verdicts came out the way they did. But they still want their money back. Sorry, guys. Ain't happening.

One last thought: I am sick and tired of Ken Lay playing the "Lord" card: "And, most of all I believe God, in fact, is in control and that, indeed God works all things good for all who love the lord. We love our lord, all this will work for good." He's evidently forgotten (or ignored) the fact that Jesus said, "Inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me." If Ken Lay loved Jesus so much, he wouldn't have stolen the life's savings of his loyal employees and left little old ladies in California without the means to pay for artifically inflated energy costs. When he stole from them, he stole from the lord he claims to love.

UPDATE: Digby addresses the story the MSM hasn't, and won't: the relationship between George W. Bush and Ken Lay. You've got to admit, they talk the same Jesus talk and walk the same anti-Jesus walk.
