Well, I think I will have a cigar in their dishonour.

Skilling and Lay, or as they will soon be known, Trixie and Layla, found guilty on multiple counts.

The Enron jury just came back with its verdict. Ken Lay has been found guilty of all six of his jury trial counts, as well as having been found guilty of banking fraud charges in a bench trial portion of the charges. Jeffrey Skilling was found guilty of 19 of his 28 charges.

Now, if you were Ken Lay, and you were in on those Cheney Energy Task Force talks where they divvied up Iraq in August of 2001, wouldn’t you be thinking about getting Someone (ANYONE!) on the phone right about now?

Long-time readers (both of you) will remember my Grand Unified Filed Theory of the Iraq war, Plamegate and the foot-dragging on the Lay/Skilling trial….

With any luck, it will all come unraveled with one or two phone calls made by a man who REALLY wants to stay out of jail.
