I missed the article as I was on vacation in western Minnesota, specifically
Lake Benton, "the Wind Power Capital of the Midwest." The vista of
windmills up and down Buffalo Ridge was impressive. These wind farms were
one of the first assets that Enron sold off. Interestingly, the lady who
ran the bed and breakfast where we stayed said that while the project was
being constructed, a fellow from a bank in England stayed at her place.
Since his bank was putting up a lot of the money for the project, he was
just there to see it get put in place. From the sound of it, this wind
project may have been one of Fastow's schemes that involved the British
banks and is now coming back to haunt them.
