Fastow children vs. Enron children, Part 2. Even
Ken Lay distinguishes between the small children of his supposed arch-nemeses Andrew and Lea Fastow and those of the rest of the Enron employees they collectively bilked:
[Criminal sycophant LARRY] KING: How did they, since it wasn't you, how did they pull this off? Was it Mr. Fastow? Was he a genius?

[Former Enron CEO/Chairman KEN] LAY: I don't think anybody has questioned Andy's intelligence. Andy is a very intelligent individual.

KING: He's going to testify. He's one of the government witness against you.

LAY: I'm sure he'll be in the trial...

KING: His wife went to jail.

LAY: Which is very sad, Larry...

KING: Did you like her?

LAY: Well, as far as like individuals, they're both God's children. Just like we all are and they're lovely people and, I mean, as far as the context of just the individuals, but they have small children. It's just an enormous tragedy on that family.
I'm so glad I missed this interview. The nausea this induces is truly profound.

The Fastows, according to Kenny Boy Lay, are "God's children." But the Enron employees who bought Enron stock for their 401(k) plans when Ken said "Buy" (but secretly sold $90 million worth), well, they must be something far less than the children of God -- they're the children of Enron.
