the flim-flam man

In one last big con job, white-collar grifter Ken Lay scored another forty-three and a half million dollars.

Because he died before the appeals process was completed and sentencing finalized, Kenny-boy's conviction will be abated and the Justice Department will not seek to recover the $43,500,000 in fines and penalties which the court assessed against the thieving Enron CEO.


We need to invent a new class of irony for moments like this. I propose that we call it "enrony."
