26. These are energy traders at Enron
One of whom tells a CA power plant to shut down a steamer. What's the difference? There was a culture of rapine at Enron, and that culture went from the Lays and Skillings of the world to the trading desk, where a bunch of savages took glee in their greed, theft, and negligence. The entire fucking structure of these pirates was sick from top to bottom.
