Kenneth Lay: A Higher Court Has Already Sentenced Him

Squeezed July 7, 2006

What do Kenneth Lay and Slobodan Milosevic have in common? They have the dubious distinction of having escaped the prison of life before having been duly judged and sentenced.

I guess God disagreed with the maximum sentence that Lay would receive (which would have, in effect, been life in prison), and decided to impose an even harsher sentence. Death. (Not that I agree in any way, shape, or form with the death penalty…at least as imposed by humans.)

On the other hand, his lawyers can take some credit for ensuring that their client would not spend one day in prison. How they managed to negotiate with the Almighty, though, is beyond me.

I don’t know. This just seems so…surreal.
