Alcoholism seems to be the "easy" way out

Jeff Skilling, convicted felon and former CEO of Enron, was arrested on September 9 for drunk driving. He is due to be sentenced in October for his dirty deeds at Enron.

It seems that alcoholism is the way out for former bigwigs. Skilling and former U.S. Representative Bob Ney of Ohio have both fallen into the disease after being disgraced and thrown out of their jobs.

Interesting. I'd pick something else. Alcoholism is becoming too passé.
