Boo hoo. Your husband still deserves to rot in hell.
2002-01-29 11:06:35 AM  
It's all relative.. she just means, they only have less than 5 million in assets and cash.
2002-01-29 11:06:56 AM  
I still think Ken is a good guy. A good guy who made some bad decisions. If that defense worked for me with the wife to cover my many infidelities, then I think it should work for him as well.

With 4 houses in Houston, and that little shack up in Aspen,
I'd say you were pretty farkin far from broke.
2002-01-29 11:07:46 AM  
Boo hoo. $300 million. You are so broke.
2002-01-29 11:10:09 AM  
Burn these farking people alive.
2002-01-29 11:11:16 AM  
Yawn. Sorry, don't feel sorry for them. Farkin' crooks.
2002-01-29 11:11:49 AM  
Just like mc hammer is 'broke'

as Sesame says, it's all relative.

to me, broke is having less than $1 in your pocket and zero in the bank and the car payment is DUE.
2002-01-29 11:12:10 AM  
Enron CEO broke? [clack!] Whatsthat!? Oh its just my BS meter skipping off the rail.
2002-01-29 11:12:15 AM  
She looks like she is melting in that picture. I guess her plastic surgery was on a payment contingent.
2002-01-29 11:12:40 AM  
When I see them living in a refrigerator box under 610, I'll believe it. Until then, it's all a big pr machine spinning the wheels.
2002-01-29 11:12:51 AM  
Not even enough money to buy the smallest violin in the world?
2002-01-29 11:13:01 AM  
And now.... gg gg gg gasp... (squirt tear) for God Sakes... I had to make my own breakfast yesterday... gg gg gg gasp (squirt tear) and I'm going to have to pump my gas myself now??? gg gg gasp (squirt tear)
2002-01-29 11:13:47 AM  
Broke?.... Bahahahahaha har har har.. You wanna see broke?
Look at my farkin' assets...
2002-01-29 11:14:49 AM  
What's up with that woman's right eye? looks like it's malfunctioning.
2002-01-29 11:15:15 AM  
Yeah broke in the US, but what about your Swiss and Caiman Island accounts??? People don't go on TV if you are going to keep lying.
2002-01-29 11:15:25 AM  
Put this biatch on "Smack Yo Biatch Up"!

"[Ken Lay is]...honest, decent, moral human being who would do absolutely nothing wrong." I'm not to sure 'bout that.
2002-01-29 11:15:36 AM  
Either Ken Lay is the dumbest guy alive.....or the dumbest guy alive. See, you can't have it both ways. If he was such a visionary leader, he ought to have known at least some of what was going on at Enron. If he wasn't a visionary leader--how the hell did he end up with the CEO job? And what kind of "debts and obligations" could possibly go through $110,000,000 in one year? That's a monthly burn rate that would've made a failed dot com proud.
And to put his wife out there, shilling for him, snuffling to Lisa Myers about all they've lost. Sheesh.

Eat me.
2002-01-29 11:15:48 AM  
boo hoo, our stock analyst says our wealth has dropped to 10^6 instead of 10^8 dollars
2002-01-29 11:16:11 AM  
someone hand her a cashmere hanky
2002-01-29 11:16:47 AM  
bullshiat! you lady, are pathetic. the people you your husband farked are broke. nevertheless, thank goodness Dubya hasn't changed those bankruptcy laws yet. the Lays will still be able to walk away broke, absolved multimillionairs.
2002-01-29 11:17:26 AM  
I don't know why we're wasting time with this guy. Let's just take a vote and then kill him. Why bother with justice when the media has made clear he's guilty? Due process is for the popular people.

(and since someone's bound not to get it: /sarcasm)
2002-01-29 11:17:59 AM  
Give Ken a break. They inadvertantly shredded all of the money, too.
2002-01-29 11:18:11 AM  
Someone offer her a minimum wage job and see if she takes it.
2002-01-29 11:18:26 AM  
ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME????? I have to shop for my own God danged groceries now!!! I was wearing a damned Rolex and now I've got this crappy Tag Heuer! I have to shop normal malls every day now!
2002-01-29 11:18:54 AM  
Cry me a farking river...
2002-01-29 11:21:15 AM  
Actually... The first thing that came to mind where the words my Father use to say... "What a huge steamin' stinkin' load !"... nuff said.
2002-01-29 11:22:17 AM  
I think the key word here is "had". That is, before they sold it all for millions of dollars.

Even if that wasn't the case, I wouldn't mind if I was broke except for the million dollar properties I had up for sale.
2002-01-29 11:22:49 AM  
I feel so sorry for these people. They are the rich, they are American royalty. HOW!? DAMMIT HOW will they be able to continue with their lives as multimillionaires as opposed to multibillionaires? They are paupers! Now they won't be able to buy that matching set of His and Hers Cruise Ship lines! The private airport will need to be SCALED DOWN!! Unfortunately, this man may never get to be our president, think about what our country has lost.

Come to think of it, I hope they get their electricity cut off.
2002-01-29 11:23:49 AM  
I remember when the NBA had a lockout and Kenny Anderson of the Celtics was "hurting" because he couldn't to make the payments on all 7 of his cars. Well there you go. I guess suffering in this country is relative.

2002-01-29 11:25:16 AM  
You commie liberals, here is a man who has stolen millions worked hard and all he gets from you is abuse.

Its the rich that make the world such a happy place to live, by sacrificing themselves for the benefit of others. What about the servants and gigilos she is no longer employing, what about their children hippy scum?
2002-01-29 11:26:04 AM  
Wish a few more Enron execs... former or not... would commit suicide.

...and take your CryptKeeper wives with you on the way out.
2002-01-29 11:27:51 AM  
Whether Lay knew anything or not, he was still the CEO and the buck stops with him. He's the one ultimately responsible for either mess or success and since this is a huge farkin mess he should take the blame (that's why CEO's make the big bucks).
2002-01-29 11:28:23 AM  
Ponzi Scheme: the Ponzi scheme continues to work on the "rob-Peter-to-pay-Paul" principle, as money from new investors is used to pay off earlier investors until the whole scheme collapses.

Enron: See above. Compare and contrast.

Poor Ken, he was just a nice guy who was used by evil people. /sarcasm
2002-01-29 11:28:34 AM  
I can't believed she blamed the media for the suicide of the vice chairman.
2002-01-29 11:28:45 AM  
Tsh, Directros wives [shudders]. ewwwww!
2002-01-29 11:29:05 AM  
I think she got her acting lessons from the same studio that brought us "Patsy Ramsey: The I'm Really Innocent Story" and "O.J. Simpson: I'll Find the Caddy Who Did It!"

And I don't need any of this! I don't need this stuff, (he pushes all of the letters off the desk), and I don't need you. I don't need anything except this (she picks up an ashtray) and that's it and that's the only thing I need, is this. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray. And this paddle game (picks it up), the ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need. And this remote control. The ashtray, the paddle game and the remote control, and that's all I need. And these matches. The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control and the paddle ball. And this lamp. The ashtray, this paddle game and the remote control and the lamp and that's all I need. And that's all I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one - (sees something) I need this! The paddle game, and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches, for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I am, some kind of a jerk or something? And this! And that's all I need. The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, this magazine and the chair. And I don't need one other thing except my dog. (shiathead, the dog, growls) Well I don't need my dog.

I'd start investing in any company which makes pitchforks, rope, or torches.
2002-01-29 11:36:02 AM  
Broke, my blue-collar ass.

Look at this news story at the HoustonChronicle. It reveals that:

- Lay made $300 million in compensation over the past four years.
- They own 4 homes in Aspen, 3 of which are for sale.
- They own 13 (!!) homes in Harris and Galveston counties in Texas.
- Their Houston home has been assessed at $7 million.

And this is without considering any off-shore bank accounts they may have. Farking crooks and their farking, lying wives.
2002-01-29 11:36:08 AM  
Would her face melt first in a fire?
2002-01-29 11:37:08 AM  
You know they're selling that property so they can get ithe cash into off-shore accounts. Properties can have liens and judgements placed against them very easily.
2002-01-29 11:37:22 AM  
looks like she's arm wrestling Mr. Inviso in the original pic
2002-01-29 11:37:44 AM she has to drive the 3 series BMWs. Poor Mrs. Lay! No more ladies lunches at Neiman-Marcus, days at the spa, tennis lessons at the country will she survive?!?
