You may recall the man in the picture above: Ken Lay, longtime CEO of Enron. 


“White collar crime” is a curious combination of words.  It tends to blunt our outrage over the actual damage individuals commit.  Consider a computer hacker who may not have the guts to rob you in the parking lot, but they do in equally or even more destructive ways.

And then there are those CEOs like Lay who ruin many lives, but do not look as sinister as other criminals.  God, for one, and the one who really matters, is not so easily snookered by the window dressing!
