  •  Also Remarkable How The MSM "Uncovered" This (1+ / 0-)

    Meaning "did not really cover" this. The CNN report I heard made it sound as if these were odds and ends, family trinkets and knick-knacks that Sentimental Gentleman Madoff was passing on to family members. No value was mentioned by CNN.

    At the time I was cynically thinking "Bet they were worth at least a million." I misunderestimated the outrage by miles.

    Madoff has been treated like some kind of aged aristocrat who has committed a regrettable error, who needs to be comfortably hidden away. But he's not a Hapsburg, or a Romanov, or even a Bourbon (though he may drink it). This is the 21st century, not the 19th, and he "allegedly" stole $50 billion plus.

    What you see is what you get, but what you don't see is what ends up getting you.

    •  Well, this was a bit different (0+ / 0-)

      The original story was about some items he'd already mailed. These were checks, made out and signed (I don't know whether or not they were already in addressed, stamped, envelopes, or not...), ready to BE mailed. A search of his office uncovered them. I'm guessing they searched his office after the FIRST story.

      I'd provide at least token links...but I'm working a vol shift behind a firewall...  :(

      The main difference between the 110th and the 111th: One less Bubble, One more Shaft...
