- His death was "tragic."
- The editorial page paints Lay as the hero in a Greek tragedy (their words, not mine.)
- Astros owner Drayton McLane says that he made Houston a better city.
- A man of the cloth says that he was a unique philanthropist (aren't philanthropists supposed to give money away?)
- The former mayor thinks of him as a good and decent man.
- His trial was stressful and could have exacerbated his condition. Those mean old Feds. How dare they prosecute a weak old man?
Fed's announce last week their intention to seize $43 million dollars in assets...load family up for one last trip...take cardiac arrest inducing drug undetectable by toxicology tests...pending criminal case is vindicated...family keeps assets/gets nice trip to Colorado...government gives up and files no civil charges against the estate.
Yup, that about covers it. If you ask me, in one final act of greed, Ken Lay "took one for the team." But then again...what do I know? I'm just sad that I got beat to the punch about asking the question "Who knew he even had a heart?"
