Here's another way to look at 2001: If, one year ago, you had invested $1,000 in Enron stock, today your investment would be worth $7.43. If, instead, you had invested that $1,000 in Budweiser (not Anheiser-Busch stock, but just 12-packs of Budweiser beer), today your investment would be worth $14.68 when you turned in the empties.

Repeated here, for the benefit of those who missed it the first time, is my favorite joke of the year:

A: Pay him for the pizza!
