Enron: go directly to jail

Reasons to be cheerful on a Friday include former Enron bosses Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling being found guilty of fraud. Skilling, who looked very shocked (ha!) by the verdict, could face, along with Lay, between 20 and 30 years in prison. The 2 men are free until sentencing, which is scheduled for 11 September. Just hope they don't do a runner!

Enron epitomised corporate capitalism, the super-rich bosses who made fortunes worth some $400m while ordinary people struggle to make ends meet.

So I am glad these greedy money grabbing men with their noses in the troughs got what they deserved.

I wonder if Dubya will be visiting his old mate "Kenny Boy" in jail?
