  6. I'm curious about this one. Living in Houston and watching this extensively covered every night for a months on end on the local news, there is no doubt that a massive fraud occurred. The stock was selling at $100 a share, and 6 months later it was worth $1 a share, and the govt. had not gotten involved. It collapsed all on its own, and the primary witness was Sharron Watkins, an internal Enron finance executive who went to Ken Lay, then chairman, and described what she thought was the fraud. Andrew Fastow was the CFO, and he pled guilty to securities fraud and agreed to testify against Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling, both convicted. Many lives were ruined here in Houston, the Enron pension fund held mostly Enron stock and peoples pensions were wiped out. Skilling is still in jail, although his sentence was reduced from 24 years to 14 years and he will get out in 2019. There was a securities fraud, and a bunch of executives were convicted and served time. That seems like justice to me. I have not heard of one person who pled guilty, or was convicted, that was not in fact guilty of securities fraud and/or insider trading. All that is not to say that the justice dept. doesn't go after people sometimes. Notably in the Vietnam war era, certain people in the anti Vietnam War movement found themselves with charges filed against them that they thought were political persecution for opposing the government. Heck, Daniel Ellsberg who leaked the Pentagon Papers to the press had his case dropped because the Nixon dirty tricks team broke into his psychiatrists office to see his medical records. Those same guys burglarized the Watergate and led to Nixon's downfall.
  7. Just a little more, my grandmother always used Mello Joy coffee, which is being made again in Lafayette.

  10. A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a check-up, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember .. Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks. 'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?' 'Sure.' 'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks. 'No, I can remember it.' 'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?' He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.' 'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks. Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!' Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. She stares at the plate for a moment. 'Where's my toast?'

  15. OBJ has a job, Wing is still waiting on a team to pick him up.
  16. From Aranda's comments on anger, seems there's a difference of opinion on how to correct players mistakes between he and Saban! Aranda is unusual, I don't think I've ever heard a defensive coach like him, but I like it. A lot of players would like to play for Dave Aranda, I think.
