It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

Microcosm for US economy?

Enormous debt, leadership chanting that all is well as the ship goes down, shifty leaders looking more and more like they might get off scot free.

It must be sweet to be a big business guy: make millions of dollars, suck dry the retirement accounts of working guys, take "adventure" junkets to baja every other weekend, walk away with a bundle of money, make a deal with the government.

Lay and Skilling are as adept as their chum George W. at making themselves seem innocent, and making certain they didn't leave any smoking guns.

If you ever have a hard time believing that our country is full of greedy pigs that will do anything to make a buck look at this company. From top to bottom, investor to CEO, they did all they could to mislead and rip off the small guy. Sickening.
