The System Works

I have renewed faith in America today for two reasons. First, former Enron executives Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling have been found guilty of being liars, cheaters and life-destroyers. Lay on all 6 charges against him, and Skilling on 19 of 28 counts. This won't get all those pensions back to the Enron employees who got screwed, but at least these people can rest easy knowing that Lay and Skilling will spend their retirements in a federal lockup.

More importantly, however, for the psyche of a bruised nation, Taylor Hicks won American Idol instead of that crappy(-er), fake(-er) Catherine. Maybe voting is worthwhile after all. Too bad he has to sing that song as his first single.
