    it was on the news this morning that he died of a heart attack, not suicide...

    Wiki: Lay died at his home in Aspen, Colorado of a heart attack on July 5, 2006. According to Lay's pastor the cause was a "massive coronary".[3]

    Sure, "heart attack." Looks like GWB's buddy "Kenny-boy" might have been hushed-up by Cheney (aka The Silencer). :) I'm not one to make fun of the sadness his family must be feeling but Lay, Skilling, et al are truly evil human beings.

    It'll get removed soon. The comment "The guilt of ruining so many lives finaly led him to his suicide." won't last two minutes on wiki!

    And it probably wasn't guilt.

    It was the prospect of sharing a cell with bubba for the rest of his life....

    True. He hardly came across as a man who demonstrated concern for others.

    I never rejoice at a death, but some certainly bother me less than others. And some don't bother me at all.

    I agree. The only thing that bugs me is that I was hoping that Kenny Boy would rot in prison for the rest of his years. I'm sure GWB would have pardoned him on his way out of office though.

    Part of me wishes that they still had debtors prisons.

    Sounds a bit too simple. I bet he faked it. There going to bury a wax sculpture and Mr. Lay will live happily ever after on a small Island somewhere where the US can't extradite...

    Kinda sounds like the end of season 1 of Arrested Development when George Bluth faked a heart attack to flee to Mexico. Maybe Lay is enjoying a Margarita in TJ right now?

    I merged the threads and put them here for now; if it gets too political, someone report it and it'll get moved.

    It's so unfair. I was hoping we'd bring back public hanging just once especially for him.

    As a Christian, I am sure that some pretty heavy punishment awaits him in the next world.

    (But I really wanted a chance to stick it to him in this one! :eek: )

    I turned on the t.v. just as Barbara Walters announced his death on The View and she seemed extremely sad about it. Considering that he helped ruin thousands of lives and can be considered a criminal, her reaction really surprised me.
