Never to be outdone, Adelphia founder John Rigas was convicted of fraud along with his son yesterday. Hey, you know what was really criminal? Adelphia's cable service. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't I *not* get any Dodger games on my TV for awhile because of those jerks?

Meanwhile, the indispensible gangsterblog In The Hat can't help but take a dig at Kenny Boy Lay:

LAY and his scumbag homies probably robbed more money in a week than every gang in LA combined does in a year. While it made me feel good to see LAY cuffed up and doing the perp walk for the cameras, it would have made me feel even better if a couple of bluesuits cut loose on him with MAGLITE flashlights.

And did you notice all that polish and sophistication blow away the second LAY faced the cameras? He started squealing like a 12-year-old-girl at a Britney concert.
