In an article titled “The Enron Box,” author Matt Bivens and The Nation attempts once again to pin the tail on the elephant.
Here’s the lead sentence:
When George W. Bush co-owned the Houston Astros and construction began on a new stadium, Kenneth Lay agreed to spend $100 million over thirty years for rights to name the park after Enron.
Only one problem. Bush co-owned the Texas Rangers, not the Houston Astros.
Do you, like me, wonder what else they got wrong? Considering the source, is it even worth bothering to read the rest?
