Enron's Skilling Gets 24 Years

Finally, some good news on the corporate scandal front: Jeff Skilling, former CEO of former high-flying company Enron, received his sentence today -- 24 years.

Hooray. The little guy wins a little victory.

Now, too bad Skilling cannot reach into the depths of Hell to pull up his cohort, "Kenny Boy" Lay, and make him get sentenced, too.

Lay's sentence was vacated because, well, he vacated Earth. So, technically, Ken Lay was never convicted of any crimes.

And that's a crime in and of itself.
