OK, so a lot of the loot is in Ruthie's name, and she will probably get to keep some of it whether or not she, too, is indicted. I am unmoved by the injustice of la famille Madoff being allowed to keep some of their loot. Life is unfair. I was taught that systematically, and I accept it, although I would be willing to accept the villa in Antibes as a gesture intended to soothe my feelings.
I am more disturbed by the fact that so many Jews let this piece of s–t cheat them because he, too, was a Jew. How dumb is that? Hell, we could have found lots of Gentiles pefectly willing to cheat them with equal efficacy and despatch. (Here I am revealed as a self-hating Gentile. But, then, you probably already sensed that.) Seriously, folksim, don't trust people just because they belong to some category or other. There are scum bags everywhere. (I was taught that by my father who took me to visit the camp at Dachau when I was a small boy – 1948ish maybe?
No. I want to know where Bernie stashed the money that he kept. The numbers indicate to me that there is a lot of money that is not accounted for by simple pay-outs to later "investors." Where is it? WHERE IS IT?
Is there a government involved? I want to know. pl
