ENRON AND ON AND ON, PART II
I'm as stoked as the next guy when I think about putting various Enron criminals behind bars, but what exactly is the point of having them testify before Congress? It's not a courtroom. The committee hearings aren't going to solve anything. They appear to be nothing more than a TV op for Congressmen to get some good soundbites of themselves asking obnoxious questions (and don't you know those clips will show up in campaign commercials soon?).

If I was about to be indicted for anything, I wouldn't say a word in front of Congress and I'd try not to attend. Send the lawyer. I can't see the benefit for anyone on that side of the cameras.
