I made some snarky remarks about Ken Lay today and a woman called to complain, horrified that I would dare make fun of a man who had just died.

I offer no apology. The guy was a scumbag yesterday when he was alive, he’s a scumbag today when he’s a corpse. There should be no double standard there.

Save your tears for those who deserve it, not some evil, lawbreaking, cheating CEO sumbitch who — if he hadn’t been a multi-millionaire — would have died in jail awaiting his appeal, instead of at a vacation home in Aspen.
