I just heard about this from a co-worker.

Wouldn't surprise me to see more freaky shit in the near future!

I've tried to follow most of this, but can't since I wasn't paying attention from the beginning. Can some give me a few line summary on this? I'm lost :(

Real real basic...

Enron was in financial trouble. Arthur Anderson, their accounting/consulting company instructed them to shred documents and advised upper management to sell their shares of Enron while the Enron corporate braintrust told employees to keep vested and don't sell their shares. Enron tanked and upper management made out like bandits while thousands of Enron employees lost their jobs/pension/pfp. Arthur Anderson and Enron are going to be fucked and some of the upper management are now feeling the pinch and some are committing suicide.

So thats a brief and very uninformative synopsis. Check the web (CNN) for some information.

Remember Vince Foster? The WhiteWater thing? Heh.

Although Foster's "suicide" was a lot more questionable than this one. Then again, everyone* learns from their mistakes right? :D

*Whomever is hired to kill these people.;)

Does anybody remember the Simpsons episode where Bart sees into the future at the Indian casino?

Secret Service : "Want me to kill him? You get 2 free secret murders per term. But if you don't use them, they're gone!"

Or something along the lines of that.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if this kind of stuff happens again real soon with some other Enron executives. They screwed all the employees and stockholders and now they're going to be held reponsible for it all. Way too big of a burden for some of them, I'm sure.
