    I’ll believe that Lay is dead when I a) see the dead body and b) witness it being buried at a crossroads with a stake in its heart.

    Seriously, he has the connections and the money to fake his death and disappear into some rich-dude resort, if anyone does.

  2. I’d like to believe that Kenneth Lay’s death was the result of a very well done execution by vigilantes or paid assassins hired by all the shareholders…that would be justice.

    But yes, we need some proof he’s really dead…The only thing we know for certain is that whether he is alive or dead he’s going to keep getting billed for that AOL account.
