Sam Israel, Bernie Madoff, Marcus Schrenker...these are just the high-profile crooks that we know about. No doubt that for every one of these guys we hear about, there are probably ten that we don't. It is sad that these scumbags rip off people and then try to escape their responsibility like cowards.
But it is also the society we live in - a society of greed, excess, every man for himself. I mean - look at this photo:
Mr. Schrenker is all about image - the car, the plane, the wife. I wish I could get him alone in a room and do a classic Jack Bauer interrogation...but I digress.
It is disgusting. But, again, in my opinion, for every one of these guys we hear about, there are ten that we don't.
On a more positive note, Trader Jamie's blog gets better every day. If you are not reading it I have to ask - why?
