I listened to Jay Leno's monolog last night -- lots of Enron and Enron/Congress jokes; not a mention of Bush or Cheney. He just made fun of the crooks in Congress investigating the crooks at Enron. The NR story comparison of the number of jobs lost at Enron to those from layoffs at a manufacturer like Ford puts the story in focus. It's a good point that needs more emphasis.

I've been pointing out the bogus claim of Enron being the 7th largest company in the USA for weeks now. Most people are so surprised when I mention the 4,500 jobs lost versus the 35,000 at Ford. Levin only mentions 20,000 but I believe the correct figure is 35,000 - granted over a 3 year period I think.
The best part of this whole farce is how foolish everyone in Congress looks. Could you believe the questions they were asking? Worse yet, they all thought they were the next Perry Mason with their incivisive questioning. What a crock. They have no idea what they are talking about so all they can do is huff and puff, pound the table and show their outright indignation!!! It's so pathetic it is embarrassing.
