Former President George H.W. Bush was among the mourners at Enron founder Ken Lay's funeral in Houston. Mr Lay had been an overnight guest of the former President's at the White House.
Mr Lay died in Aspen of a massive heart attack, months after his conviction in the Enron case -- but before he was sentenced to what could have been a life term.
Rev Bill Lawson eulogized Mr Lay as a "victim of a lynching" -- and compared him to Martin Luther King, Jr, JFK, and Jesus Christ. (AP via Yahoo!)
