Just before hearing the verdicts I was reading Thomas à Kempis:

Keep your eyes on yourself and avoid judging the actions of others. In judging others we accomplish nothing, are often in error, and readily fall into sin; but we always gain by self-examination and self-criticism.
Thomas, I think you are 100% correct. I plan on trying to avoid such behavior in my quest to become a better, more humble, more compassionate human being.

Like Augustine, however, I pray for the strength to be less judgmental, but not yet. This opportunity for gloating just feels too damn good. Those greedy fucks Lay and Skilling can go to Federal Prison and experience literally what they metaphorically did to their shareholders and employees.
