Enron’s former broadband finance chief received one year’s probation, including nine months’ home confinement, for falsifying company books."And so this is how justice works in the USA today, that the guy who cooked the books, bringing down the retirement hopes and dreams of a generation, who literally held the state of California hostage (which helped to oust a sitting governor and install Ahhhhhnold and we still pay the highest electricity rates in the nation), this man gets nine months of home confinement.
Meanwhile, some kid from the wrong side of the tracks in just about any American City will spend the rest of his adult life locked up for selling drugs".

Washington, D.C. – Today, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington(CREW) asked Health and Human Service (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to investigate why the Center for Disease Control (CDC) approved the distribution of the H1NI vaccine to Wall Street firms at a time when the vaccine is unavailable to most Americans.All of this is lifted from Mock, Paper, Scissors.
Recent news reports indicate 13 companies, including Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase and Time Warner, have been cleared to receive the vaccine.
The CDC is distributing the much sought-after vaccine to Wall Street firms despite reports of vast shortages. In fact, just yesterday CDC Director Thomas Frieden informed Congress that only 32.3 million doses are available, far less than the 159 million needed to cover those at the highest risk. Given the scarce supply, the CDC has recommended the vaccine be directed only to those at highest risk: pregnant women, infants and children and those up to 24 years, those who care for infants, health and emergency services personnel, and adults with compromised immune systems or other chronic health problems.
