Enron canary prepares to sing

Former Enron energy trader Tim Belden, who just pled guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, is preparing to give prosecuters an earful regarding the company's malfeasance and general naughtiness during the California energy crisis last year.

While at Enron, Belden headed the trading operation in Portland, Ore. He reported to then-Enron executives John Lavorato, Greg Whalley and Mark Frevert, who in turn answered to Enron's Chief Executive Officer Jeff Skilling.

Do you hear footsteps behind you, Jeff Skilling? Doesn't matter if you look back or not, something is indeed gaining on you. Sleep tight, bubbelah.
