The decades of the Good Life might be worth the last few years on the  
inside.  It's at least plausible that it's a rational trade.  Was he  
dumb?  That's for him to say.

Or, hey, take the "late" Ken Lay.  I mean, even if he actually *is*  
dead: a bunch of years being really really rich.  And then, at worst,

beach someplace tropical, laughing at all the rest of us.
