It's Friday for me

I finally got a chance to watch Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room last night. Idiotic partisan undertones notwithstanding, it made for quite the interesting watch.

Though by now the narrative is permanently ingrained in the cultural psyche, the story never ceases to amaze. However, it's not the corruption or the greed that awes me; those are far to commonplace to deserve a second glance. Rather, it's the fact that Skilling, et al had the vision to even formulate the exploitatory processes that they did, on the massive scale that they did.

Simply amazing.

My company nearly went the way of Enron, albeit on a much smaller scale, as a result of following its business model, and then suffering the consequences of its fallout. But thanks to a new baller CEO and the decision to pare back down to our core businesses (pipeline and E&P), we've mounted a hell of a comeback in the past few years.

Rah, rah, rah.

I'm leaving for San Antonio tomorrow for some R&R on the Riverwalk, and will be gone until Saturday or Sunday.

Call if you would like to join me on the Margarita Trail.
