Dear kindhearted friends ...

Now that the holiday season has passed, please look into your heart to help those in need. Enron executives in our very own country are living at or just below the seven-figure salary level ... right here in the land of plenty. And as if that weren't bad enough, they will be deprived of it as a result of the bankruptcy and current SEC investigation.

But now, you can help! For only $20,835 a month, about $694.50 a day (that's less than the cost of a large-screen projection TV), you can help an Enron executive remain economically viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the problem, as it barely covers their per diem, but it's a start. Almost $700 may not seem like a lot of money to you, but to an Enron executive, it could mean the difference between a vacation spent in DC, golfing in Florida, and a Mediterranean cruise. For you, seven hundred dollars is nothing more than rent, a car note, or mortgage payments. But to an Enron executive, $700 will almost replace his per diem. Your commitment of less than $700 a day will enable an Enron executive to buy that home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari, or enjoy a weekend in Rio.

HOW WILL I KNOW I'M HELPING? Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the executive you sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate, and other investment holdings will be mailed to your home. You'll also get information on how he plans to invest his golden parachute. Imagine the joy as you watch your executive's portfolio double or triple! Plus upon signing up for this program, you will receive a photo of the executive (unsigned -- for a signed photo, please include an additional $50.00). Put the photo on your refrigerator to remind you of other peoples' suffering.

HOW WILL HE KNOW I'M HELPING? Your Enron executive will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to help in a time of need. Although the executive won't know your name, he will be able to make collect calls to your home via a special operator just in case additional funds are needed for unexpected expenses.

I would like to sponsor an Enron executive.
My preference is checked below:
[ ] Mid-level Manager
[ ] Director
[ ] Vice President (Higher cost; please specify which department)
[ ] President (Even higher cost; please specify which department)
[ ] CEO (Contribution: Average Enron janitor monthly salary x 700)
[ ] Entire Company
[ ] I'll sponsor any Exec most in need. Please select one
for me.

SPECIAL LIMITED TIME OFFER Already an Enron supporter? Don't worry, in this troubled economy, there are many executives who need your help. Ford today is laying off 35,000. The NASDAQ is deflated. Now you can show your patriotism and do something about it. The Invisible Hand will allow supporters to substitute executives from any downtrodden company listed on **** You will never own a Bentley, wear hand-tailored silk shirts, or have a gentleman's gentleman; why deprive a worthy executive from ascending, and more importantly, from maintaining the lifestyle he so richly deserves? Imagine the feeling of satisfaction,the pure joy of knowing that your sponsor ex-executive at the former will be able to have his caviar and eat it too.

*It's just that easy -- do it now!* Please charge the account listed below ___________ per day and send me a picture of the Enron executive I have sponsored, along with my very own Enron "Keep America Strong, Sponsor an Enron Executive: Ask Me How!" T-shirt to wear proudly.

Your Name: _______________________
Telephone Number:_______________________
[ ] MasterCard [ ] Visa [ ] American Express [ ] Discover
Account Number: _______________________
Exp. Date:_______
Signature: _______________________

Mail completed form to "The Invisible Hand" or call 1-900-2MUCH now to enroll by phone. Note: Sponsors are not permitted to contact the executive they have sponsored, either in person or by other means including, but not limited to, telephone calls, letters, e-mail, or third parties. Keep in mind that the executive you have sponsored will be much too busy enjoying his free time, thanks to your generous donations. Contributions are not tax-deductible.

How can people expect the Lays to live on the measly $80,000 a month from the insurance policy their Enron profits paid for. My Gawd, what kind of heartless bastards are we turning into?

Give till it hurts

I wonder if Skilling is going to hold onto his lovely trophy wife, better known as "Miss Va Voom" at Enron, now that he's worth such a paltry sum.

On a more vindictive note, I can't wait for some fat, smelly Bubba to get his hands on these "purty mouthed" executives when they finally end up in prison.

These guys don't do jail. If anybody involved does more than 6 months at a federal country club I'll be shocked.

When the smoke clears I think they are going to tell us the dead guys did it.

Yeah, they will do easy time in the spa while their offshore holdings double and triple in secret anonymity. I feel their pain.

Baxter at Enron and we had an Anderson guy found in a state park who seems to have "offed himself" at about the same time.

Nobody's doing hard time here, we don't punish our superiors.
