If there is any consolation for me it all, it is that my net-worth is slowly but steadily climbing in a world where others’ numbers are quickly declining. For example, here’s the latest gossip about Ken Lay, thanks to CNN Money:
His $1.9 million trust will be depleted by legal fees, which will probably total $30 million. His retirement holdings have fallen from $68 million to only $3.5 million. According to the New York Times, Lay’s net worth is now sitting at $650,000, down from $400 million at its peak.
If that isn’t financial defeat, I don’t know what is.
By the way, I’ve selected a winner for the latest giveaway and I’ve emailed the winner for confirmation. If everything’s cool, I’ll announce later today.
