Skilling's sentence is reduced.
See here. Is fourteen years enough for the havoc caused by those who led Enron (after Rich Kinder left)? It's hard to say. I've never been in a federal prison, even as a visitor. I can't imagine what life "inside" is like. I know it's not easy, even in a minimum security prison. But I also know that there are many, many people who can't retire until they die, thanks to those who manipulated financial information at Enron, WorldCom, and the like. The people whose pension funds were wiped out have life sentences, so to speak.
