[Lawyer Michael] Ramsey described [disgraced Enron head Ken] Lay as "bone-solid, churchbound all his life," and highlighted his millions of dollars in philanthropy. While Lay accepts responsibility for the bankruptcy of Enron, Ramsey said, "Failure is not a crime. Bankruptcy is not a crime. If it were, we would have to turn Oklahoma back into a penal colony." --The Associated Press
And, of course, people who are "churchbound" never commit any crimes, right?
UPDATE: God Is My Codependent notes that Ramsey seems to be confusing Oklahoma with Australia. A quick search turns up no info on Oklahoma ever being used as a penal colony, but speak up if I'm wrong.
