((The New York Stock Exchange suspended trading of Enron Tuesday. Less than two years ago, the company traded at about $90 a share. Now it averages less than one dollar. Thousands of Enron employees watched their life savings dissolve as the companys stock collapsed. Tuesday morning many of them started applying for COBRA benefits, temporary health insurance while they figure out what to do next. Enron's auditing firm is also under investigation for destroying thousands of related documents last fall. Arthur Andersen fired its lead Enron auditor Tuesday and disciplined others. Ken Lay, Chairman and CEO of Enron! Clapping! Unlike last year, no one is applauding Kenneth Lay now. And a letter subpoenaed by Congress shows he may have known Enron was in trouble before the collapse. Last August, an employee wrote to Lay: It sure looks to the layman on the street that we are hiding losses. I am incredibly nervous that we will implode in a wave of accounting scandals. CHRIS LAWRENCE/CBS NEWS: An attorney who filed a class-action suit against Enron says, this letter confirms what he believed. BILL LERACH/ATTORNEY FOR ENRON EMPLOYEES: The top executives at Enron were aware of the shaky financial condition of the company, and of the artificial nature of their profits long, long before August of 2001. Enrons energy-trading business will survive. A Swiss investment bank has acquired that part of the bankrupt company, and will share some of its profits with Enron...and it's creditors.
