EMULEX….The Likely Story says that “Emulex is Arnold?s Enron.” Say what? What’s an Emulex?

Well, whatever else it is, it’s the company that employed both my wife and me from 1984 to 1992, and we still have friends who work there. Beyond that, however, these days Emulex is apparently also a hotbed of contributions to Arnold’s campaign. Is this because they’re hoping Arnold will be more sympathetic to their request for favorable tax treatment than the current administration?

Beats me. But I hope that I won’t someday have to tell people that I used to work for the Enron of California….
