And now a word from Mr. Ken Lay on the steps outside the courthouse where he had just been convicted.
I firmly believe I’m innocent of the charges against me, as I have said from day one. I still firmly believe that as of this day. But despite what happened today, I am still a very blessed man. I have, on my left, this beautiful lady that's my wife. I have a very warm and loving and Christian family that supports me, a lot of friends, including some out there in the audience right now. And most of all, we believe that God, in fact, is in control, and indeed He does work all things for good for those who love the Lord. And we love our Lord, and ultimately all of these things will work for good.
Boy, that's rich! Here's a bastard who's destroyed thousands of lives and extorted billions of Californian consumer's dollars by phony manipulation of energy prices and what's the first thing he does after his conviction? Jumps in bed with his god. I would dearly love to see these two mob bosses do hard time for a long, long time. But I'm not jumpin' up and down til their bar doors have been slammed shut and locked down.
