Looks like they are finishing it up and we’™ll have a trial of Bush’™s good friends Lay and Skilling going very soon. Note this little bit about Lay and Skilling showing up at the Courthouse. . .

As journalists began camping out in front of the courthouse as early as last night, Lay and his wife held hands as they walked into the building with their defense team shortly after 8:30 a.m. this morning.

When asked from someone in the crowd, ‘œIs this a chance to clear your name?,’ Lay replied, ‘œIt certainly is.’

Lay also said he was ‘œlooking forward’ to getting his day in court. He was met by reporters and photographers before crossing Smith Street, and the press crush grew as mounted Houston police and federal marshals tried to direct traffic.

Skilling’™s arrival a short while later was met by a similar scene, except that he and his group made a wrong turn and inadvertantly walked into the media throng rather than toward the courthouse door. They turned around near where two followers of fringe Democratic activist Lyndon LaRouche had set up a banner protesting Enron and the nomination of Samuel Ailto to the U.S. Supreme Court.

If Skilling has that much trouble, perhaps he needs some help, like in the picture above?
