CORPORATION FILES FOR BANKRUPTCY

See the source image

On December 2, 2001, the Enron Corporation filed for Chapter
11 bankruptcy protection in a
New York court, sparking one of
the largest corporate scandals in U.S. history.

An energy-trading company based in Houston, Texas, Enron
was formed in 1985 as the merger of two gas companies,
Houston Natural Gas and Internorth. Under chairman and
CEO Kenneth Lay, Enron rose as high as number seven on
Fortune magazine’s list of the top 500 U.S. companies.

In 2000, the company employed 21,000 people and posted
revenue of $111 billion. Over the next year, however, Enron’s
stock price began a dramatic slide, dropping from $90.75 in
August 2000 to $0.26 by closing on November 30, 2001.

Enron’s collapse had cost investors billions of dollars, wiped
out some 5,600 jobs and liquidated almost $2.1 billion in
pension plans.

JFK WAS LAID TO REST ON THIS DAY IN 1963

Three days after his assassination in Dallas, Texas, John F. Kennedy
was laid to rest with full military honors at
Arlington National
Cemetery
in Virginia.

Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was shot to death
while riding in an open-car motorcade with his wife and Texas
Governor John Connally through the streets of downtown Dallas.

Ex-Marine and communist sympathizer Lee Harvey Oswald was the alleged assassin. Kennedy was rushed to Dallas’ Parkland Hospital, where he was pronounced dead 30 minutes later. He was 46.

Vice President Lyndon Johnson, who was three cars behind
President Kennedy in the motorcade, was sworn in as the 36th
president of the United States less than two hours later. He took
the presidential oath of office aboard Air Force One as it sat on
the runway at Dallas Love Field airport. The swearing in was
witnessed by some 30 people, including Jacqueline Kennedy,
who was still wearing clothes stained with her husband’s blood.
Seven minutes later, the presidential jet took off for Washington.
