Salon has a nice exclusive today. They’ve got the list of people who received “retention bonuses” totalling $55 million right before Enron filed for bankruptcy. The bonuses also came right before Enron announced that those employees who wouldn’t need “retention bonuses” because they weren’t being retained at all were to have their severance packages eliminated. I’m beginning to think that the appropriate punishment for Enron’s excutives (current and former) would be one free kick in the crotch from every employee and shareholder who got burned, all to be administered by surprise.
