    Ken Lay got caught, convicted, and ALMOST went to jail.

    He died at his ski condo. One can only hope it was painful.

    It's called trickle down integrity.

    The two clowns at the top are rotten to the core and therefore so is every branch of their company.

    You get a gold star.

    Except change evil to 'ANY'... companies should NEVER self-regulate.

    However...

    Industries can be allowed to a LIMITED amount of self-regulation. (e.g. MPAA)

    As usual, self regulation means no regulation. The Koch Bros. are the whacko Jonh Birch Society from the 60s and 70s which they've rebranded as the Tea Party. You just can't make this sh*t up.

    Hm...I wonder...could a company set up a subsidiary to conduct illegal activities and take the fall should it get caught?

    If they did that, they wouldn't have investigated themselves.

    Does common sense just vanish when people hear the Koch name or something?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
