Monday's Column: Enron, Uncle Sam, and You

I’m a little late in posting today’s column at WorldNetDaily, mainly because the site was down most of the day and I couldn’t get the URL of the column. So instead I waited patiently in the pool. You have to love those floating lounge chair things with the built-in cup holders. Move over, Tom Edison, because that’s the best invention of the past two centuries.

Anyway, last week, Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling were convicted on any number of fraud charges. The Enron debacle, along with WorldCom and others, resulted in the Sarbanes-Oxley law. Sarbanes-Oxley, as I write, tries to ensure that the fox won’t ever again want to raid the chicken coop by killing the chickens. 

Read more about it in “Uncle Sam Lays down the law”.
