    Then you have less intelligence than DyePack believes the NYT and mainstream media possess.

    I'll repeat what I said when al-Zarqawi died...Hell just got another occupant.
    And I buy the heart attack angle...I can imagine the stress and anxiety you would feel over spending the rest of your life in a federal pen has got to be unreal. And that son-of-a-bitch went through that for four years.

    And at the risk of feeding a troll...in 2001, I tried to use the staff Christmas wishes column to say the thing I wanted to see most was Osama bin Laden hanging from a lamp post in Kabul...but my editor didn't think that sentiment was appropriate for the season of giving.

    You guys never fail to disappoint. Thanks.

    i'll just add my two cents, fwiw. there are about 30-50 people we should feel sympathy for -- grandkids, kids, their spouses, any blood relatives, etc. they didn't choose to be born related to this pathetic lying despicable human being. other than condolences to those few people, i agree with the thinking that he got off easy.

    that the rat bastard proclaimed his innocense until his dying day is a crime. as someone who lives his life by the rules and loves to see people face the consequences of their actions, i am deeply disappointed that he'll never spend a day in prison. that's why we have prison -- to make people realize that they were wrong. being a 65-year-old man in prison would've given him about a decade to maybe come to the realization that he was guilty of every single thing they said he was guilty of . it's a damn shame he died believing he was innocent.

    No surprises, here (from mouthpiece Tony Snow):

    "The president has described Ken Lay as an acquaintance, and many of the president's acquaintances have passed on
    during his time in office."

    Yeah, you have to appreciate the spirit of that . . . the thousands of Enron employees who each got robbed of six figures,
    certainly do . . .

    That would be funny . . . if it wasn't pretty much the exact way things went down.

    Who supported bin Laden at first, financed him, helped him become a powerful influence?

    Look in the mirror, America.
