When Kenneth L.

Indeed, alongside a broad mixture of lampoon and good riddance, was a wide lack of credulity at the idea the man had died at all. 'Word on the street is that he's actually chillin' in the Dominican Republic, fanning himself with his offshore money he squirreled away and sharing a pitcher of sangria with Tupac,' wrote NemesisBecoming, a New York City blogger, on Thursday. 'It's too (expletive) convenient.'

Is there any doubt in your mind that Enron founder Kenneth Lay is dead?

I'm of the opinion that he somehow faked his death, fled the country, and is now living on a secluded island laughing at us all.

And now I realize the article said something similar.

No, but I doubt that he died of natural causes though.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 8/6/06 - 1:55:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think he's dead.

He's chillin on a desert island with Jim Morrison, Marilyn Monroe, and Elvis.

A little bit, yes. It just seems a bit too convenient.

I think he's dead, but not from natural causes.
