The Ken Lay conspiracy

what do you guys think....???


Many theories are swirling around the Enron chief's death ..

NEW YORK ( -- Is Ken Lay, a Fortune 500 power broker who rubbed shoulders with world leaders and the jet set elite, really dead?

To some folks, no.

As the New York Post observes, once a cheater always a cheater.

"It's the CIA," said one mysterious caller to

"There [must] be proof beyond any doubt that Ken Lay is dead and there is not a double being used so that Ken Lay can hide somewhere with the money he stole," wrote a reader.

"Make sure somebody in the press sees a body," added another reader.

There are several theories. The general idea is that Lay faked his death and is now living somewhere south of the border ... no doubt partying with Elvis. How could he pull off such a feat? Well, he was a one-time friend of President Bush. Even raised campaign funds for him. So either through friendship or even blackmail, then, the government helped.

Or perhaps Lay is dead ... but not from a heart attack, as the local coroner said. Maybe the CIA used one of its fancy poisons -- you know, the untraceable kind -- to keep Lay from embarrassing the President.

Or Lay used a poison himself to keep from suffering the indignity of prison. A sort of Samurai send off. After all, his whole family was with him at the end. (That Fourth of July holiday thing was just a cover).

How does the song go? "Lunatic fringe, I know you're out there ..." Conspiracy theories tend to pop up when there is dissatisfaction and disappointment. And that's the case here.

People cheered when Lay was found guilty of conspiracy and fraud. After all his actions, or inactions, wrecked lives. And after four long years the high and mighty chief executive was finally going to get what was coming to him.

Now that's not going to happen. Justice is cheated. There must be something to blame besides ... fate?

And so people grab at any idea that seems to provide some sort of twisted closure. The Bush connection is particularly attractive (Funny. If you mention Bush in a Lay story, you are tagged with Liberal Bias, but if you leave him out you are accused of Right Wing Bias). And, of course, Lay's final rep was as a cheat ... so why wouldn't he keep on cheating?

As many a "Twilight Zone" episode has noted, you don't cheat death. The only conspiracy here is the human scheme to have life make sense. You can only hope that we've learned something and perhaps have a little sympathy for the family.

But did you notice how fast that autopsy took place?

Thanks, D.

So are squat, balding, middle aged white guys who look like this...

The real test I guess would be to see what happens to the MONEY.

All charges and claims against him are void believe it or not. This means the court restitution order of $45M+ no longer holds water. Ken's wife got a great break she would not have gotten otherwise. They get to keep the house too LOL. I guess her plans to travel to Argentina or some place will be underway once she liquidates without anyone breathing down her neck.
Does anyone know if one of those CIA planes were used lately?

Aspen has an abundance of money and a shortage of dead people. The New York Times has become the second shittiest paper in New York, behind the tabloid that is the New York Post.

I also think you're keen to incite public riots, with your rampaging torrent of left-leaning plagarizations being posted here on such a frequent basis.

Where do YOU stand on any of this shit?

The criminal convictions maybe expunged but the civil proceedings are unaffected.

Incidentally, this is yet another reason NOT to support that stupid-ass tort reform business.

Ken Lay contributed large amounts of money to the Bush camp, and probably took quite a few secrets to his grave. Conspiracy theories shouldn't surprise. What really would interest me, is the story behind former intelligence guru William Colby's death.

No kidding, that's a death worthy of a conspiracy theory.
