Lay & Skilling Go Down, Stock Market Goes Up

Well, it's over. Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling are guilty. They will likely appeal. They will likely go to jail. Lay will lose what little white hair he still has on his head.

I know a lot of people who are thrilled with this result. While I think the boys are guilty and that Andrew Fastow is the worst of the bunch, I still wonder if these criminals belong with the thugs with whom they will likely share cells.

The unevenhandedness of justice makes me uncomfortable, to say the least. I've talked about it before here, when discussing what a life is worth.
