Maxed out 

It’s not personal, it’s just business

Today, just about every ex-employee of Enron would like five minutes alone with Kenny Boy in a dark alley. By comparison, the UNIONIZED employees of Malden Mills voluntarily agreed to give up paid personal days that will save the company half a million bucks. They also threw in a three year pay freeze.

Politicians are sending back contributions from Enron. They’re lining up to congratulate Mr. Feuerstein.

The American people are demanding Kenny Boy and his accountants and lawyers be brought to account for their actions. They’re sending Mr. Feuerstein letters with cheques in them.

Enron is dead. Malden Mills will survive.

So what’s this got to do with Whistler? Well, the Big Kahughna and Suzanne Denbak are in New York courting, and being courted by, the suits behind the World Economic Forum. The WEF wants to hold their annual meeting in Whistler every other year or so. They used to hold them every year in Davos, Switzerland, but Davos isn’t so keen on having them – and their security contingent and the protesters who follow them – disrupting their ski town every year.

I’d bet a lot that the movers and shakers at the WEF thought Ken Lay was a brilliant businessman and Aaron Feuerstein was a quack.

So where does that leave us? We court the oily slimeballs of the IOC and the suits of WEF. Is this the kind of town you thought you were living in? If I were you, I’d start writing letters. Quick!
