Schadenfreude, anyone?

Filed under: — stan @ 1:01 pm

Enron founder Ken Lay dies

Lay “suffered a massive coronary and died,” according to his pastor, Dr. Steve Wende of Houston’s First United Methodist Church. “Apparently, his heart simply gave out.”

I think there are several snarky comments about that that are fairly begging to be made…

Actually, the only reason I mention this is just to have an occasion to use the word schadenfreude. Truly a $10 word if there ever was one.

    Yes, but the man was ON VACATION, in Colorado, while he was awaiting sentencing for bilking folks out of their retirement money. Spend it before it’s gone, I guess, or as stated in the book “Die Broke”, “The last check your write should be to the undertaker, and it should bounce.”

    Yep…what some people won’t DO to escape going to jail! (snark!) Guess Good ole Jeff Skilling is just gonna have to get that room with a view all to himself!
