Ken Lay Predicted His Own Death

The official Ken Lay info page, besides being a prime example of Web 1.0 brochureware, has a letter to visitors penned shortly after the trial’s conclusion. In it, he expresses surprise and shock (twice) at the outcome, some blah blah blah, and then, his belief that this is all part of God’s plan. In light of Ken’s recent “demise,” the concluding paragraph runs rife with irony and foreboding.

You were too good for life in prison, Kenny-boy. God loves you back, so much so that he couldn’t wait to look down and see you dancing on the devil’s pitchfork!

(Thanks to Chris!)

    I think most people are looking at this the wrong way. To my thinking, a few hundred million can pay for a pretty spectacular fake death. I only wonder that Kenny cheaped out and went for the mundane rather than magnificent.

    I am really kind of put off by all this semi-rejoicing people are doing. I’m not even remotely a Ken Ley fan, but it’s still sad when someone’s husband, father, grandfather dies. There shouldn’t be any joy in death.

    My sister mentioned that maybe its a conspiracy, and that Ken Lay isn’t actually dead. Which got me thinking, that Dubya may have just finished season 4 of 24, you know, the one where President Palmer fakes Jack Bauer’s death so that he won’t go to jail.

    Dubya: Heh heh, hey Ken. i just finished watching this show called uh “24”. And uh, I ‘ve got a great idea…
