I might actually bid. I especially liked the Enron slogan "Can't Stop the Momentum" and the "values" Respect Itegrity COMMUNICATION, etc.

I put it on my watch list.
I have too many friends that got layed off from Enron...Tig
Mar 17, 2002 2:47 PM to protect my health and their feelings, I'd have to pass. Besides, it's F-UGLY! :o)

Enron is similar to the United States in the eyes of the rest of the world... the employees/citizens suffer from the bad reputation made by the corporate officers/government leaders.

...that the US is regarded by the "rest of the world" in the same way that Enron is regarded now.
I've done a fair amount of traveling in England, Ireland, Luxemburg, Germany, Austria, France, Spain, Israel, and Canada, and find the US to be mostly respected by both the general population and the business community. I freely admit that I don't have experience in Arab, African, and Asian countries, but they don't comprise all of the "rest of the world."
Furthermore, I've found that non-Americans are inclined to judge us on an individual basis, rather than on the government policy-du-jour or some supposedly national characteristic.
